This year, for the first time, ESPN is giving out a youth achievement award at the ESPYs Breakfast next month (the winner also earns a trip to the awards show, which airs July 20). Among the five finalists: Max Frost, a Cooper City High School freshman-to-be who earned his spot by winning an essay contest on ESPN.com.
Here's the link to the list of finalists. Frost's video is the one on the far right. Frost plays basketball at the Jewish Community Center in Davie (where the video was filmed) and soccer at Cooper City Optimist. He will join the Cowboys this fall.
You can vote for Max by following the link. One vote per day will be counted; Frost currently is in second place. Voting ends June 15.
