The Oklahoman’s All-City Prep Sports Awards is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for outstanding high school athletes to be acknowledged for their achievements.
We’re recognizing 563 athletes from over 100 high schools for their on-field success, academic achievement and community involvement. Athletes, family members, coaches and community sponsors will enjoy a Q&A session with keynote speaker, International Tennis Superstar, Venus Williams.
How athletes are selected
The same formula has been used for over 35 years in selecting the All-City award winners. This process begins with the nomination forms we send to each coach in the Oklahoma City metro area. Also included with those forms is a page where coaches can nominate players from other teams that they believe are worthy of All-City consideration. We collect them and begin to weigh the achievements of the nominated players.
In many cases, we call coaches to further discuss the merits of their players and players they coached against to give us more information about everyone we’re considering for our All-City teams. From there, we do our best to make the most informed decisions possible to select the players for the All-City teams.
There is no additional nomination process for All-City athletes. Athletes selected for The Oklahoman’s All-City teams will automatically be eligible to attend the event. There will be a nomination form sent to schools for our Scholar-Athlete award.
