Top athletes, teams to be honored at Celebration of Champions

Posted: Updated:

This year's Pepsi Celebration of Champions could be one of the most intriguing and competitive events in its 15-year history.

Honorees for the best athletes and best moments in sports this past year will come together Thursday at the Grand Ole Opry House, and the night will be capped off by the sports person of the year.

That category includes ATP tennis player Brian Baker, who stunned the world with his comeback from five major surgeries and is now recovering from one more; National League Cy Young Award Winner R.A. Dickey; American League Cy Young Award winner David Price; Vanderbilt football coach James Franklin, who has done a great job resurrecting the program; and FedEx Cup golf champion Brandt Snedeker.

Other awards include high school individual awards and team awards and the Fred Russell Lifetime Achievement Award.

Tickets are still available for $15 each or $10 for Kroger Plus Card customers. For more information, visit
