Yuba-Sutter Gold Sox Vice President/General Manager, Michael Mink, will be presenting the MinkDog Sports Radio 93Q, NorCal Player of the Week Awards. “These awards are here to honor the youth that are working tremendously hard to achieve their dreams and goals,” said Mink.
The Player of the Week Awards will be presented to local talent who are not only team leaders, but they show that they have what it takes to make it to the next level. These highly competitive awards will be awarded to ten outstanding players for the 2017 football season. Mink will then hand out the Player of the Year Award as well as the Coach of the Year Award after all Bowl games have been played. “We want these kids to know that the community is watching them and rallying behind them to be the best that they can be.
