Recipient's comments: "Basically, I'm pleased where I am at as far as my sports career and playing baseball at North Carroll. I would like to continue to work hard to get a baseball scholarship in college and I'm working on, perhaps, going to Georgia Tech. This summer, it was great making the Yankee Rebels team, and I've spent most my time playing baseball."
