Eric Johnson presented the 2023 EM Network MVP award on Friday afternoon to senior Jozie Kanode.
Johnson explained that just like last year, “The EM coaches had the opportunity to nominate an outstanding athlete and then I sent the nominations out to all of our sponsors and the get a voice to vote for one athlete.”
After all the votes are tabulated Kanode definitely had the majority of the ballots. The award also included a scholarship from the network.
Johnson noted that Kanode excelled at “showing a true positive character on the court. She was always trying to make sure the team succeeded despite the circumstances. She definitely put the team ahead of herself.”
