OWLs Nest Awards Categories
Most Valuable Player of the Season and Rookie of the Year are of course among the categories. Robbie and Jake both pick the same player for MVP, but have there are two winners for Rookie of the Year. Of course, you’ll have to listen to the episode to see who won. Most Improved Team is for the team that showed the biggest jump in teammate and results since the 2019 season. Biggest Surprise could be anything from a player performing better than expected or an entire team flipping the league on it’s head with their performance.
Biggest Let Down is a category not designed to encapsulate any one player or team, but rather to highlight the many challenges of the season. As the league rises to combat every trial and tribulation that comes their way, there will inevitably be some let downs as fans and players. Finally, most likely to own next season is for a team that showed growth and determination this season and will take it into 2021.
