SportsField Management magazine announced its Rising Star Award winners in the October issue, highlighting the best up-and-coming leaders in the sports field management industry. Nominees were submitted earlier this year.*

2023 Rising Star nominees had to be under the age of 40 as of January 1, 2023; or, if over the age of 40, must have been new to the sports field management industry within the last 10 years. Candidates were evaluated based on professional accomplishments, community and industry involvement, philanthropic efforts and other exemplary qualities. The Rising Star Awards review panel included SportsField Management magazine staff, as well as SFMA members from all areas of the industry. So, the Rising Star Award winners were nominated by their peers and selected as winners by their peers.

* The SportsField Management magazine Rising Star Awards are an independent award production created and presented by SportsField Management magazine. Although SFMA members were involved in the nominee review process, the awards program is not an official SFMA award. As such, nominees did not need to be members of the national SFMA to be considered for a Rising Star Award.
