The Miami Herald will once again honor the top athletes in Broward County at its annual All-County Athletic Awards banquet.
The event will be held Friday morning at Signature Grand in Davie and honor athletes and coaches in 17 sports. Athletes and Coaches of the Year in each individual sport will be announced as well as the overall athletes and coaches of the year in both Class 8A-6A and 5A-1A.
A Lifetime Achievement award will also be presented to an individual for longtime service to the athletic community.
The Leo Suarez/Walter Krietsch Courage Award will be presented to an individual who has showed extraordinary courage in the face of adversity much like those two former Miami Herald editors did before they passed away.
The All-Sports Award winners, honoring the top overall athletic programs in Broward, will also be announced.
The event begins at 8:30 a.m., but guests who have previously purchased tickets are strongly encouraged to arrive at 8 a.m. when doors open. No tickets will be sold at the door.
