Dr Pepper Most Inspirational Player – December 1, 2021 12:00 P.M.

The San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl, in cooperation with Dr Pepper and the Kiwanis Club of San Diego, is proud to continue a program for the 2021 football season that will honor a student-athlete who is often overlooked.

The Dr Pepper Most Inspirational Player Award aims to recognize a San Diego County high school football player who, through their presence, actions and words of encouragement, serves as an inspirational example to their teammates. The program celebrates the unsung heroes of our high school football teams. 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.
