The Top Spirit Standouts from Summer League!

This year we introduced Spirit Standouts in place of the old Spirit Ties

After each game both teams were encouraged to select one player on the opposing team as the Spirit Standout for the game. Each week during the summer, we did a random prize draw for that week. You can see those winners on our Spirit Standout Page.

Since captains reported the Spirit Standouts as part of their game reports, we have some fun facts to share:

  • 1647 different players were recognized. That works out to 43% of players in Summer League!
  • 249 players were recognized more than once. That’s 6.5% of all players in Summer League. 
  • 228 teams had players who were recognized. That’s every team!

Congrats to everyone who was named a Spirit Standout this year! Your spirited play makes this sport and league what it is.
