September 18, 2023 – Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, in collaboration with Miami Dolphins Radio Network, is recognizing exceptional high school athletes from Miami-Dade and Broward counties this football season.
Area parents, coaches, principals, and athletic directors are encouraged to nominate high school athletes who have demonstrated outstanding sportsmanship, academic excellence, and athletic ability. Selected winners are being featured on iHeartMedia Miami stations Y100 and 103.5 The Beat.

Each student “athlete of the week” winner will receive a $150 gift card, be recognized on Miami Dolphins Radio Network, and will be eligible for a “Student Athlete of the Year” scholarship to the college or the university of their choice.
“Nicklaus Children’s is committed to supporting the region’s children and ensuring they have access to the best possible care right here in their own community,” said Matthew A.
