Nominations are now being accepted for the 2012 Dr Pepper TEN Most Inspirational Player Award. For the fourth straight year, Dr Pepper TEN and the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl have teamed up to recognize a deserving high school student-athlete.
San Diego area high school football fans are encouraged to visit www.xtrasports1360.com and click on the link to nominate a player who inspires his team to do their best on and off the field. The nominations are being coordinated by XTRA Sports 1360. The deadline for submissions is Friday, November 30.
"The best players get the accolades and attention," said LaDrue Jordan, chairman of the inspiration program. "This award seeks to recognize those who fly under the radar screen, yet play invaluable roles on their football teams."
Bowl organizers will review the nominations and select the winner. The Dr Pepper TEN Most Inspirational Player will receive a $2,000 scholarship courtesy of Dr Pepper TEN, and be recognized on the field during the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl. The game kicks off at 6:45 p.m. on Thursday, December 27th at Qualcomm Stadium and features teams from the Pac-12 and Big 12 Conferences.
The Dr Pepper TEN Most Inspirational Player Award is supported by the Kiwanis Club of San Diego.
