OMAHA (KMTV) — It's time to unveil our nominees for the 3 News Now Male Athlete of the Year:
TYSON GORDON: The Skutt Catholic senior quarterbacked the Skyhawks to a perfect season and their 2nd straight Class B title last November. Gordon then helped Skutt go undefeated & win a state championship in boys' basketball this March. It's believed to be the first time a Class B school has gone unbeaten in both football & boys' basketball. On the court, Gordon leaves as the school's all-time leading scorer and assist leader. Gordon's future though will be on the gridiron as he signed to play football at North Dakota State.
JACK DOTZLER: The Roncalli QB threw for Class B single-season records of 3,421 yards & 41 touchdowns last season helping the Crimson Pride to the state semifinals. Dotzler also dazzled on the court, averaging nearly 17 points per game leading Roncalli to the state final for a 2nd straight season.
CHUCKY HEPBURN: The Bellevue West junior guard helped the T-Birds soar to their 5th state title in program history and 1st since 2014. Hepburn had 17 points per game and a Class A best 6.5 assists per contest. The Wisconsin commit is currently ranked as a Top 130 recruit nationally by Rivals.
HUNTER SALLIS: The Millard North junior led the Mustangs to the Class A state title game in March and packed gyms all over Omaha thanks to his high-flying dunks. The six-foot-four Sallis averaged 22 points per game last season. The uncommitted 5 star is currently ranked as the #11 player nationally in 2021 by Rivals.
