Vote for Livingston Daily Athlete of the Week (Feb. 15-21, 2021)
Standouts are beginning to emerge now that we’re two full weeks into a full slate of winter sports.
Some of those standouts are on this week’s ballot for Livingston Daily Press & Argus Athlete of the Week. Others from previous ballots continued to have huge weeks, but I try to wait a few weeks before putting individuals back up for a vote.
Voting is open until 3 p.m. Wednesday. Vote early, vote often.
