The Johns Creek Athletic Department has partnered with Longhorns of Johns Creek to create a new Athlete of the month award. Head coaches of sports in season submit nominations to the athletic department and the community votes for the athlete of the month. Each month we will honor one male and one female student athlete with a certificate, an Under Armour sackpack, and a gift from Longhorns Steak House. Make sure to cast your vote for a Male and Female Athlete of the Month! Voting will end on Sunday, September 18th at 9pm.
