We are thrilled to announce the expansion of the Best Preps program with BEST PREPS 365—a year-long effort to connect and engage with high school athletes, parents, coaches, and administrators. This initiative celebrates outstanding achievements on and off the field, inspiring the next generation of leaders and champions.

Nominations begin in the fall for Football, Volleyball, and Cross Country. In the spring, we will accept nominations for Baseball, Softball, Golf, Basketball, Swimming,  Powerlifting, Student Athletic Trainer, Soccer, Tennis, Track & Field, Bass Fishing, Drill Team, and Cheerleading. 

Our nominees feature the best of the best, not only in their athletic performance but also in their GPA, volunteerism, and community involvement. Each of our Best Preps nominees has been nominated by their coach and has maintained at least a 3.0 GPA this year, with at least 10 hours of volunteer service. 

The addition of the ETVarsity Best Preps Souvenir Magazine has afforded us the unique opportunity to include two exclusive photoshoot events in the fall and spring for our nominees. These photoshoots are fun for all, with music, games, and food from our sponsor, Chickfila! We look forward to using this opportunity to make sure that each nominee is featured with their headshot in the Souvenir Magazine. See the Photoshoot Section for highlights from previous photoshoots and upcoming photoshoot information. 

The culmination of Best Preps 365 will be the highly anticipated Awards ceremony in April, where we’ll announce the winners and unveil the souvenir magazine. We look forward to celebrating the achievements of our exceptional student-athletes throughout this exciting year-long journey.
