Quote from Coach Davison about Trevor:
Good sportsmanship encompasses many aspects of the character of Trevor Spence, of which is respect. Trevor consistently demonstrates respect both for his teammates and his opponents by playing with integrity. There is a connection of Trevor’s character off the court and his good sportsmanship on it demonstrated by his determination, skill and hard work. Trevor is a tremendous teammate by his selflessness, respectful, communication, accountability and positive attitude. It is very rewarding to see Trevor recognized as the recipient of the prestigious Kellie Stephens Sportsmanship Award.

Randolph County Athlete of the week-Josh Crawford

Josh is a Junior wrestler here at Union City. He wrestles the 145 pound weight class. He finished 5th at the ECIC tournament on December 23rd. This tournament was a tough one for all involved. For Josh to finish 5th is a huge deal in that 145 pound weight class. Josh is currently 16-6. He started out the season 0 and 5 and since that day he has only lost one other match. The best thing about Josh is the type of kid he is. He is always the first to jump in and lead by example. He is always the last one out of the gym and wrestling room. He works hard and never stops.

This award is awarded each week in Randolph and Wayne Counties and is sponsored by Wetzel Auto, BSN Sports and Radio Stations WKBV (1490AM/100.9FM, Richmond), G1013FM (Richmond) and WZZY/Star 98.3FM (Winchester)
