In Sunday's annual Reynolds Wrestling Banquet, several members of the program were recognized for their outstanding achievements during this past school year. We already announced Legacy Club scholarship winner, Kane Kettering, earlier this week. Now, let's give kudos to all of the other award winning performances by the Raider team members.
There are a number of special awards given to the high school team. Some are selected by the coaching staff and others have committees that are responsible for choosing the recipients.
These awards are all part of the RHS program's Legacy: each has a compelling story behind it in honor of the respective peoples' names on the award. We will present the background of each in future blog entries. The winners were chosen with great consideration and sincerity and the young men should be proud of the honor. Here are the 2021-22 winners...
Kulka Toughness Award
Moffett Adversity Award
Lineman Award Junior with the highest GPA
Stoyer Breakout Wrestler The Road Crew Award
Bittel Ambassador Award for Sportsmanship and Team Spirit
Bob Brandt VFW Award
This following list is driven by pure traditional stats that recognizes key metrics which usually lead to success.
