Collins Hill, which won dual and traditional state championships this past season, won all three major awards. Three-time state champ Taylor Knapp was named wrestler of the year, head coach Cliff Ramos received coach of the year, and the Eagles were honored as team of the year.
Buford's Scottie Forrester received the Sportsmanship Award and North Gwinnett's Steve Epps was given the Matt Peddicord Award for comeback wrestler. Brandon Bentley, a former Parkview wrestler, was awarded the Randy Bortles Official of the Year and Bud Hennebaul was named the Takedown Club's man of the year.
