The AAU Sullivan Award is one of the most prestigious awards an amateur athlete can win (think Oscars for amateur athletes) and it is held annually at the New York Athletic Club. It has been won by the likes of Shawn Johnson, Michael Phelps, Sarah Hughes amongst others.
Last year, I was honored to be asked to host the award show and I’m very excited that I’ve been asked back! This year’s nominees include Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek and Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton amongst others and the award will be given at the ceremony held on March 14 at the NYAC.
