The Holiday Bowl is accepting nominations for the Dr Pepper Most Inspirational Player Award
SAN DIEGO – Nominations are being accepted for the 2016 Dr Pepper Most Inspirational Player Award. For the seventh straight year, Dr Pepper and the National Funding Holiday Bowl are teaming up to reward a deserving high school student-athlete who might often be overlooked.
The program aims to recognize the unsung heroes of our high school football teams. The award seeks 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.” 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.
The winner of the Dr Pepper Most Inspirational Player Award will be presented a $2,000 scholarship during an on-field presentation at the National Funding Holiday Bowl on Tuesday, December 27. All nominations must be received by December 2, 2016.
All San Diego County junior or senior football players are eligible for the award. Visit SanDiegoBowlGames.com for more information and for the application form to nominate a student-athlete.
The Dr Pepper Most Inspirational Player is supported by the Kiwanis Club of San Diego.
