A winner has been crowned in the Fresno Famous Bobblehead Tournament after four weeks of tough competition online.

The Fresno Grizzlies announced on Sunday that San Joaquin Memorial grad Robin Lopez beat out Ickey Woods by more than 1,000 votes to take the title. The Portland Trailblazers center gathered close to 27,000 of the 430,000 votes from 19 different countries.

His likeness will be crafted into a bobblehead, which will be handed out to the first 1,500 Grizzlies fans through the gates at the Aug. 22 home game.

Our own Tommy Tran and Jason Oliveira were also initially in the running.
