Who is the face of Springfield area sports? Vote here in the Round of 32

The bracket is set, and we're now looking to see who will be voted as the face of Springfield area sports.

Thirty-two of the greatest athletes in the history of the area have been selected and will face off in a weeklong tournament that will ultimately determine who Springfield thinks is the face of athletics in the area.

We received much more than 32 nominees. All were considered by a panel within the News-Leader staff. Selected nominees were put into four different regions and put in a "randomizer" to generate first-round matchups.

Votes will only be accepted online at News-Leader.
