The 2017 championship has been extraordinary so far. The unpredictability has made for thrilling viewing. Perhaps it is the rise of new players which has given the championship a new lease of life. What we want to know is can you name every Young Hurler of the Year since 2000?
Mark Coleman, Shane Bennett, Conor Whelan, Shane Kingston, all of these men are eligible to take home the award for 2017. As of now, it would appear that Coleman and Whelan are standing out as the front runners.
While two players have won the amazing double of both Young and senior Hurler of the Year in the same season, no Young Hurler of the Year has actually gone on to claim the main prize a second time.
Several of the awardees have still got plenty of time to change that however. Interestingly, the award has gone outside the All-Ireland champions 11 times since the turn of the Millenium.
Take our quiz and see how many winners you can name.
