Deadline Approaching for Dr Pepper Most Inspirational Player Award

| Holiday Bowl News

SAN DIEGO – The National Funding Holiday Bowl is accepting nominations for the Dr Pepper Most Inspirational Player Award through this Friday, December 9.  The program aims to recognize the unsung heroes of our high school football teams.  The award seeks a San Diego County student-athlete “who, through their presence, actions and words of encouragement, serves as an inspirational example to their teammates.” This individual might often be overlooked on the field, yet inspires his teammates and coaches through his commitment, positive attitude and willingness to persevere through adversity.

Interested participants are encouraged to visit and click on the link under the Holiday Bowl tab to nominate the most inspirational high school football player in the county.

The award committee will review the selections and the winner will be announced in mid-December. The recipient of the Dr Pepper Most Inspirational Player Award will be granted a $2,000 scholarship during an on-field presentation at the National Funding Holiday Bowl. The game kicks off at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, December 27th at Qualcomm Stadium and features the Minnesota Golden Gophers against the Washington State Cougars.

The Dr Pepper Most Inspirational Player Award is supported by Rock 105.3, XTRA 1360 Fox Sports San Diego, and the Kiwanis Club of San Diego.
