The Lake Forest College Football Coaching Staff is proud to announce that the winners for the fall 2010 leadership board competition were announced this weekend. With the reporting of fall semester grades, a close race in the individual competition was tipped in the favor of Senior Fullback Chris Lang. Lang individually accounted for 49 points in the Fall semester.

Lang's point total also paced his leadership board team, The Lumberjacks, who were captained by fellow senior Steven Yena. Both individuals whill be honored on a permanent plaque in the basement of Halas Hall.

Coach Catanzaro on the award winners:

"Steve did a great job of putting together a very solid and well rounded team. His leadership board team earned points in numerous ways. In addition to leading the team in academic points for the fall semester, they earned points in community service, and for athletic accomplishments. I am excited that the Lumberjacks paced our team competition, slightly edging out the defending champion Gold Coasters (six points.)"

"Chris was one of the best examples of a team player throughout his career. I couldn't be more proud that his name will be up on the wall in Halas Hall for as long as the award is still given. He fits the mold of Mike Nelson (Spring '10 winner) and is someone that I know will take great honor in receiving this award."

The new leadership board competition began with the start of classes on Tuesday.
