Ngozi and Labau highlight Blue-Gold Week honorees
Glasgow's Khari Ngozi and St. Mark's Devan Labau were honored with the Jim Williams Memorial Award for leading squad spirit and morale during training the build up to Saturday's 58th Annual DRFC Blue-Gold All-Star Football Game.
The awards handed out by the Delaware Interscholastic Football Coaches Association were just two of many given out at the All-Star Banquet at Dover Downs Friday night as all the players, cheerleaders, ambassadors, band members, and buddies were honored.
Many of the awards were connected to the Hand-In-Hand program which connects a participant with a buddy during the months leading up to the games.
The Outstanding Blue-Gold Cheerleaders Awards went to Saint Georges' Sarah Royston (Gold) and Brandywine's Courtney McGuigan.
The Hand-In-Hand Award for football players went to Travis Caravel from Sussex Central (Gold) and Cody Bauer from Concord (Blue).
Polytech's Avery Chandler and Concord's Rachel Levithan earned the Bob Carpenter, Jr. Memorial Awards for the top ambassadors. The ambassadors help coordinate in-school events to raise awareness and money for the game and program throughout the year.
The Outstanding Band Member Award was presented to Jada Little of Dover High School for demonstrating incredible spirit and dedication to the Hand-in-Hand Program.
Collin Butterworth, Kevin Durham, and Julia Hensley were honored as the 2013 Graduating buddies, while Jacob Zonick (Gold) and Justin Bates (Blue) are the All-Star buddies who spoke at the Media Day Press Conference on Sunday.
The 2013 DFRC Blue-Gold All-Star Football Game kicks off Saturday at 7pm at Delaware Stadium. Tickets will be available at the gate, with pre-game parking opening up at 1pm for $5. On-field ceremonies commence at 6pm.
