The final trophy count will be 33 awards we will pass out Saturday April 7th, 2012 10:00 AM at Cinemark Theater at the Legends. This is a community event and an opportunity for us at KCK Preps to give back to the young athletes we have covered the last few months in basketball and wrestling. I am working on some highlights just like before so I will be reaching out to some coaches especially on the ladies side of the house for some help with film. I will not be able to guarantee anything other than the film I have at my disposal. I will make every attempt to ask for it though.
We will be acknowledging a young athlete at Coronado Derek Sykes who was chosen the player of the year among the middle school coaches. So not only will we recognize the bright future we have ahead in our sophomore and freshman classes but go even deeper to know the crop of younger stars is also developing nicely.
The trophy order is in and I have a host of people who will be ready to help me like last time. My sisters Rachell Hill and Michelle Jones will help setup refreshments. Mrs Menissa Brox will hopefully make it. She works opposite of me and sacrifices much to allow me to broadcast games and do highlights most evenings so hopefully she will get to attend.
We have one sponsor (outside some private donations) right now which is the Black Police Officer Association. They were gracious enough to sign back up and will be presenting the Boys Player of the Year trophy at the event. We need more to keep building on this momentum. No donation is too small so please reach out if you would like to donate and get involved.
I take these events very serious and I will not cut corners as we are setting a new standard here at KCK Preps. We want the young athletes to work hard to earn these types of accolades and hopefully the exposure helps as well.
I am excited!! I have been reaching out to a number of the athletes we will be honoring so hopefully everyone can plan to attend. I hope to make it fun and not long like football. We will be efficient and respectful of everyones time.
Bring your cameras and hopefully we can create some memories in celebrating a fine season of basektball.
If you have any questions at all about the event please don't hesitate to ask. I am hopeful we get 100% participation from the athletes we have trophies for so any word we can get out to them is appreciated.
