Here are the OzarksSportsZone.com Top 50 Male Athlete of the Year. This group of 50 was determined by the O-Zone Staff after much discussion and debate. Any varsity athlete is southwest Missouri was eligible. It was extremely tough to narrow the list down to 50 from the 1,000’s that played sports in the area this year. All sports an athlete play went into consideration during the voting process. The athletes are in the gallery below in alphabetical order. The names are included at the bottom left of each photo.
