2023-24 Pats Cast Award Winners

The Pats Cast was lucky enough to have 15 people from the pressbox help us out in this year's voting so we had 17 total voters. 

Pats' play-by-play announcer Dante De Caria asked us to join him and Drew Postey in the second intermission to announce the awards live on CKRM radio.

The audio will be available during our next podcast which is Episode #169 (the awards segment starts just past the 22-minute mark).

Players received 3 pts for a first-place vote, 2 points for a second-place vote, and 1 point for a third-place vote.

Here are the awards:
