Here we go, the voting for the center position over the past decade, from the 2008 season through the 2017 season, is here to begin this series.

One center will take the top spot in the starting five. Any other centers that are getting a lot of votes will either make the roster as a reserve or will get an honorable mention in the final recap. I hope everyone enjoys the voting and please make sure to share it and vote away.
