Make your voice heard for the Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group UCCS Athlete of the Week for the week of Jan. 6-12. Fans can vote through, at, on twitter at @GoMountainLions, and on Instagram at @GoMountainLions. Voting ends at 10 a.m., MST, on Jan. 15, with the Athlete of the Week announcement at 3 p.m., that afternoon.

Fans can vote once per medium, so the same person can cast votes on all three platforms before voting closes.

Why do we ask? This helps limit people from voting over and over and over again. If you want, you can click below to sign up for Mountain Lion news, but we will never give your address out to anyone else.
