The Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year award is now down to its final 12 as of Wednesday, according to Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch.

While the list is obviously loaded with huge names such as Stephen Curry, Ronda Rousey, Jordan Spieth, Lionel Messi and even the Kansas City Royals baseball team, one name specifically will catch the eye of Carolina Panthers fans.

Thomas Davis.

Davis joins an incredible list as a finalist for the impressive award. To go along with those listed above, you can also find Usain Bolt, Carli Lloyd, Simone Biles, Novak Djokovic, American Pharoah and Serena Williams.

The announcement will come on December 14, but you can actually vote for Davis on Sports Illustrated’s site.

Congrats to Davis and all of the other incredible athletes.
