Detroit Free Press Sports Awards

Presented By Detroit Area Honda Dealers

About The Sports Awards

The Free Press Sports Awards recognizes and honors the top athletic accomplishments in Metro Detroit High School Athletics. Presented by the Detroit Area Honda Dealers, the traditionally live ESPYS-style event at the Fillmore Detroit will now take place as a streaming broadcast at 6p.m. on Thursday, June 18. The show will feature awards across fall and winter sports as well as a special Honda Inspiration Award honoring motivation and mentorship. With the new show format, we will still be able to shine the spotlight on the incredible accomplishments of the athletes, coaches and teams in the Greater Detroit-area and ensure that their hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed. Similar to the in-person event, the new on-demand broadcast show will feature announcements of the finalists and winners for all of our awards for the 2019-2020 school year, with the exception of spring sports as these were not completed. The show will be hosted by television sports anchors, Jesse Palmer and Sage Steele. Various celebrity athletes will also be participating in the award presentations, including New Orleans Saints Quarterback, Drew Brees, as the football award presenter; Olympic gold medalist, Michael Phelps, as the swimming award presenter; Olympic gold medalist, Venus Williams, as the tennis award presenter; Olympic gold medalist, Gabby Douglas, as the gymnastics award presenter; Olympic gold medalist, Misty May-Treanor, as the volleyball award presenter, and many more surprise appearances!
