COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Declan Farmer (Tampa, Fla.) of the 2014 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team is one of five nominees for the 2014 ESPY Award for Best Male Athlete with a Disability, ESPN announced today. The winner will be determined by fan voting and presented at The ESPYS July 16 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Fan voting is open now at ESPN.com/ESPYS and runs to July 16.

On March 15, Farmer helped the U.S. become the first nation to win back-to-back Paralympic gold medals in sled hockey by defeating Russia, 1-0, in the gold-medal game in Sochi, Russia.

Farmer tied for the Team USA lead in both goals (3) and points (5) at the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games. He tallied two goals and an assist in the 3-0 semifinal win against Canada. In his Paralympic debut, the 16-year-old notched a goal and an assist versus Italy.

Farmer was voted the International Paralympic Committee's Best Male Paralympian in April.

Notes: Steve Cash, Team USA's goaltender at the 2010 and 2014 Paralympic Winter Games, won the 2010 ESPY Award for Best Male Athlete with a Disability.
