Two of Jamaica’s top football players, Andre Blake and Khadija “Bunny” Shaw, have been nominated for the Concacaf 2022 Player of the Year awards.
Blake, the captain and goalkeeper of the Reggae Boyz, who represents Philadelphia Union in Major League Soccer (MLS), expressed his elation at being nominated for the award, saying that it is an amazing feeling to see his hard work recognized.
The 32-year-old Blake has 63 caps for Jamaica and has won four MLS all-star selections and two MLS Goalkeeper of the Year awards.
He was also the recipient of the 2022 John Wanamaker Athletic Award, a prestigious award presented annually to the “athlete, team, or organization that has done the most to reflect credit upon Philadelphia and to the team or sport in which they excel.”
Shaw, on the other hand, has become Manchester City women’s highest scorer in a single season.
The Spanish Town native has scored 15 goals this season, securing her 25th and 26th goals across competitions after registering a brace against Brighton on March 12.
Concacaf will use a voting system that ensures players, coaches, media, and fans determine the winners.
The awards will be decided by a total of 100 votes, including one vote for each Concacaf Member Association’s Men’s and Women’s National Team Head Coach and Captain, and nine votes each for representative members of the media from the Concacaf region.
Fans can also vote through the Concacaf website, with the player receiving the most votes awarded four votes in the overall voting process, second place receiving three votes, and third place receiving two votes.
