Philly's Fan Favorite Bracket Contest

Update: See the first and second round results below

Who is Philly's favorite current athlete? Based on popularity and performance, we've selected the top 32 from the city's four major teams. During the next couple of weeks, they'll go head-to-head, and you'll decide who's Philly's favorite.

The athletes are seeded one through eight in four quadrants. Seedings were determined by the philly.com staff.

You'll have two-to-three days to vote on each round until only one athlete is left standing. The winner will be announced on Monday, April 4.

In order to make picks, you will have to register and set up a user name. It only takes a minute, and you will be asked to do this just once. You also have the option of logging in with your Facebook account.
