Such a nomination for the big forward comes as no surprise after a solid year for him in the Gold Cup, highlighted by a try against Zimbabwe in Kampala, a defensive menace for the Cranes in the Rugby Sevens World Cup in San Francisco earlier in July, and a leading figure for the sevens in Tunisia for Africa 7s and Christie 7s in Kenya. Byron’s Rhinos managed to secure second place in the Rugby premiership behind champions Black Pirates.
Byron goes up against footballers Allan Okello of KCCA FC, Muhammad Shaban of Raja Casablanca and Okwir Dickens of SC Vipers.
The Awards Dinner is set to happen on 6th December at the Alobo Limited Hotel in Gulu.
