Be sure to vote by 9 p.m. Wednesday, June 27. Final results will be posted on June 29.
Here are the candidates:
Jordan Ross – Senior, Clawson High School, Track and Field: Jordan Ross was the Clawson varsity track and field team’s lone qualifier for the Division 2 state finals in the spring. Ross won a regional title in the high jump with a 6’00.00” jump. He went to the state finals and finished in 14th place. Ross also helped the Trojans capture a Macomb Area Conference division title by winning the high jump at the championship meet.
Taylor Kaufman – Senior, Clawson High School, Soccer: Clawson only lost one division game this season and a big reason why was goalkeeper Taylor Kaufman. Kaufman was the defense’s anchor in the net, picking up shutouts against division-rivals Warren Woods Tower, Marine City and Marysville. Her play earned her the Athlete of the Year award from Clawson. Earlier this year Kaufman picked up a scholarship from the U.S. Marines Special Awards.
Craig Bynum – Junior, Clawson High School, Baseball – Craig Bynum lead his team and the Macomb Area Conference Silver division in hitting this season. The junior hit .525 with 42 hits in 80 at-bats as the Trojans’ No. 3 hitter. He had a solid .813 fielding percentage at shortstop. He had three doubles and three triples on the season while striking out only six times.
