The 2017 ESPY nominations are out, and the Rise of Pulisic continues as Christian Pulisic is in the running for Best Breakthrough Athlete. He’s nominated in the category with four other athletes across various sports:
BEST BREAKTHROUGH ATHLETE NOMINEES
Giannis Antetokounmpo, NBA
Laurie Hernandez, Gymnastics
Aaron Judge, MLB
Dak Prescott, NFL
Christian Pulisic, Soccer
Now seems like a good time to watch some Pulisic highlights. If nothing else, they’ll help you finish out hump day and glide effortlessly into the back end of the week like Pulisic glides into the attacking third.
An American soccer player has been nominated in this category before - Alex Morgan was on the list in 2012, though she ultimately lost to Jeremy Lin.
You can vote for Pulisic at the ESPYs page. The awards ceremony will be on July 12 and air live on ABC.
