2020 MINNESOTA MULTISPORT HONORS - Determining the winners of the MMHs is easy sometimes. More often, though, it's extremely difficult. The boys JUNIOR OF THE YEAR category was a toughie.

There is a tendency sometimes to forget that the MMH recipients need to be selected based solely on resume, and not on who is recognized as the faster athlete. This year the fastest of the nominees for male JOY did not recieve the honor, which is to say that 2019 JOY KYLE SWENSON (18, Rogers) finished a close 2nd this time around. Yes, he convincing won the junior division in both of the events he entered, setting an AG record in one of those races. That record-setting effort - Graniteman Big Lake--was arguably the Performance of the Year for a Minnesota male teen. He will also be the first teen boy in the 21-year history of Team MInnesota to make the team.

And in his only confrontation with our choice to win the JOY, he won handily. Most of the MMH Committee members agree that Kyle would have repeated as JOY had his resume included just one more strong performance.

Why then did the MMH Committee nanimously select CARSON DEICHMAN (17, Mankato) as the 2020 male Junior of the Year?
