Welcome to the annual STARS Student Athletic Recognition Awards Ceremony.

This year, due to the corona virus, things had to be done in a different way. Instead of hosting the event at the College of Central Florida Citrus Campus in Lecanto, we present a digital award show.

What hasn’t changed is we will still honor the players of the year in each fall, winter, and spring sport, the top scholar-athletes, male and female MVPs, and the overall male and female athletes of the year.

Get more from the Citrus County Chronicle

Hear a special message from:

  • Jesse Palmer - Former NFL & Sports Analyst - New York Giants | San Francisco 49ers
  • Martin St. Louis - NHL Hall of Fame - Tampa Bay Lightning
  • Derrick Brooks - NFL Hall Of Famer - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Carlos Peña Former MLB - Tampa Bay Rays | Current Analyst

STARS - Student Athletic Recognition Awards 2021

In its 14th year, the STARS Student Athletic Recognition Awards is the Citrus County Chronicle honoring the high school student-athletes in each fall, winter, and spring sport. We also honor the top scholar-athletes, male and female MVPs, and the overall male and female athletes of the year

Look for the announcement of the Male and Female Readers Choice Tuesday May 25 in the Citrus County Chronicle.

Congratulations to all of the nominated student-athletes
