Andre Blake, Kemar Lawrence, Theodore Whitmore Shortlisted For CONCACAF Awards

Reggae Boy Andre Blake is among the Jamaicans who have been shortlisted to be honoured in two categories at the upcoming CONCACAF Awards.

Established in 2013, the CONCACAF Awards are an association football award given annually to honour players, match officials and coaches from the North American region. 

Blake’s sensational efforts between the sticks at the CONCACAF Gold Cup earlier this year saw him win the tournament’s coveted golden glove award.

He is up for CONCACAF Player of the Year alongside the likes of Clint Dempsey, Javier Hernandez, Christian Pulisic and Costa Rica and Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.


His name is also down for the male goalkeeper of the year award where he will faces competition from the likes of Guillermo Ochoa,  Jaime Penedo and Tim Howard.

Reggae Boyz head coach Theodore Whitmore has been shortlisted for male coach of the year after leading Jamaica to a second place finish at the 2017 Gold Cup.

And defender Kemar Lawerence has been nominated for goal of the year for his incredible free-kick in the 88th minute against Mexico in the Gold Cup semi-finals.
