Owen Gray Heart of a Champion Nominations

2020 Owen Gray Heart of a Champion Nominations

We are excited to present the 5th Annual Owen Gray Heart of a Champion Award!  This award is different than any other award presented at the Nationals.  The Owen Gray Heart of a Champion is awarded to a player or coach who exemplifies the love of Christ in their life.  A Heart of a Champion deeply cares for their community and others above themselves.

2020 submission deadline:  Sunday March 8 by Midnight

The award’s namesake and the first recipient, Owen Gray, is a student who learned he had Marfan Syndrome and could not play basketball or participate in sports anymore.  He took this hardship and soared on wings like eagles. He raised money for the Marfan Foundation, raised national awareness for the Marfan Foundation, is constantly visiting and loving kids who are ill, never focuses on how things are hard for him, but cares for others.

Owen will be once again assisting in the hard process of deciding a recipient for this award. 

This year we are proud to once again award this to a deserving player or coach.  We get some great submissions for this award, and this year we wanted to share the amazing things these athletes and coaches are doing. 

Owen Gray Heart of a Champion Award Nomination Form

  • Any NCHBC attendee may nominate any NCHBC family, coach, player, etc. that you feel displays the traits that are mentioned.

Seeding Correction Request Form

Seeding Correction Request Deadline:

Our goal is to strive to get the seeding as correct as possible, which is why we include the coaches in this process.

Before completing this form, please take a few minutes to read over the information below.

  • We acknowledge that mistakes will be made in the process of seeding over 1,000 teams in 45 days. We count on coaches to communicate these mistakes and notify us.
  • This year we have moved all seeding correction requests to a form to streamline the process.
    When filling out this form, it would help for you to understand that we view each completed form in one of the following categories.

    • Potential Mistake, Circumstantial Appeal, Evidence Appeal, and Don’t Understand/Agree
  • We have a seeding oversight committee from around the nation that will receive copies of the forms filled out. Any seeding committee member may respond individually or as a committee. We have four categories for each form to be selected in this form.

VERY IMPORTANT: Do not get bogged down by seeds outside the Top 5. The NCHC goal is to get the top seeds as correct as possible and then create unique matchups that aren’t playing the same teams again. We seed 4-9 as interchangeable when it comes to unique match-up consideration. We also see seeds 10-16 as interchangeable when it comes to unique match-up consideration. If your contact is about seeding in terms of seeds 4-9 or 10-16, please understand that unique match-up considerations are like a puzzle and require a great deal of time as we want teams to get the most possible flavor in their early rounds as well as avoiding having teams that played at District or Conference Finals on the same side of the bracket.

When we receive submissions that are evidence-based (clear cut) mistakes, we fix these ASAP. Sometimes the situation is not as clear-cut when we receive requests that do not require a change. We will do our best to respond; however, it may not be until the seeding has gone final.

Thank you for taking the time to review the preliminary seeding.

Please Note:

Seeding Forms/Game Deadline: For a game to count for seeding to an NCHBC Event, it must either be played before the seeding deadline (Regionals/Nationals January 28th.) Results after these deadline may not be considered/counted for seeding, with the only exception being NCHBC ran Post Season events, which impact the seeding.

 

All submissions must be made within the short deadline when the preliminary seeding is sent out. Otherwise, it will likely be too late to make any changes, regardless of the category a submission falls into.

Seeding Correction Request Form

  • NCHBC Coaches Seeding Correction Request Form. This form is designed to be filled out by the head coach or athletic director of the team. The HC can designate all seeding responsibility to another individual. Very Important: Results after the seeding form deadline do not count towards seeding. For Regionals & Nationals that deadline was, January 28th.
  • List your program name, also if you have more than 1 team in an age group, please identify which team this is. Example: San Juan Crusaders (B), (II), (Maroon), etc
  • Select all that apply
  • Selecting the correct choice here is very important in this correction process.
  • Seeding Forms/Game Deadline: For a game to count for seeding to an NCHBC Event it must either be played before the seeding deadline (Regionals/Nationals January 28th) or be an NCHBC run Post Season Event. Results after this January 28th deadline may not be considered/counted for seeding.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: Do not get bogged down by seeds outside the Top 5.

  • This is your opportunity to either draw our attention to a mistake, make a request, or make your case.
  • This is the person in charge of your program. Do not list your email unless you are the person in charge of your entire program. Your AD will receive a BCC of the confirmation email you will receive with this seeding form.
