PHILADELPHIA - Dylan Price, of Sicklerville, NJ, will be named the "2016 Amateur of the Year" at the Briscoe Awards on Sunday, October 15, 2017, at Xfinity Live! in Philadelphia. Price won the US National Championships in Reno, Nevada and took home a Bronze Medal at the Youth World Championships, in St. Petersburg, Russia, both in 2016. His stellar year earned him bragging rights as the area's top amateur.

Price recently turned professional, and will take home the final salutation for his fine amateur career on Sunday. Past winners of the award include Darmani Rock, Jaron Ennis, and Stephen Fulton, all currently unbeaten pros.
