Welcome to

Since it’s inception, Positive Athlete, an organization started by Super Bowl XL MVP Hines Ward, has

awarded over $100,000 in college scholarships to high school student-athletes

based more on their character than their athletic performance. Nominating an athlete or coach is a very simple process which can be done here on this website. Student-athletes can be nominated by parents, coaches, teachers, administrators or fans of high school student- athletes grades 9-12. We are looking for athletes who have overcome difficult circumstances, given back to their schools and communities, or just have an infectious positive attitude.


Athletes and Coaches

Anyone can nominate any high school student-athlete or coach for any sport at any time between now and your state's deadline which varies per state.
