The Clover Park High School Warrior football team ended the 2009-10 football season with an awards banquet to celebrate a year of improvements. More than 200 players, parents, family members and friends participated in the banquet which included dinner, awards and a motivational speech by 1st Sgt. Stephen Nave from Fort Lewis.
1st Sgt. Nave talked about his life and the hurdles he overcome to play NCAA Division 1 football at the University of Kansas after playing on a 0-10 team in high school. During his junior year of high school, Nave also had to raise his younger brothers after his father passed away. Nave began his football career as a true freshmen at Kansas and then played for the Redskins, Browns and Giants before joining the military, were he’s served the past 23 years.
“Our team made a lot of improvements this season,” said head coach Jon ‘Taz’ Randall. “The players worked very hard and deserve an evening to celebrate with their family and friends.”
This year, 90 percent of the Warrior football team had a 2.0 GPA or better with 72 percent at a 3.0 or above. Senior Bobby Daly received the four-year Ironman award after never missing a mandatory workout or practice. Daly is the first player to receive the award. Players also received motivational awards, all-league awards, academic awards and letterman awards.Print This Post
