The Spring 2011 Semester Leadership Board winners were announced on June 13th by Coach Cat.
"After receiving the final grades for the semester, we were able to put the final standings in place. It was a VERY close battle, and I am please with the effort that our players put into their teams this year," said Coach Catanzaro.
The individual winner of the spring semester was Tommy Mitchell, a freshman from Chicago, IL. Tom played his prep football for LFC Alums Pat Dunne (Head Coach) and Mike Fitzgerald (Offensive Coordinator) at Marist High School. Mitchell started the last eight games of the season for the Foresters. Mitchell edged fellow freshman Jordan Cruz (Birdview, TX) by 6 points in the individual competition. Mitchell finished the semester with 148 individual points as he was the lead point earner for the Red Devils.
For the team award winners, it also was the closest battle since the leadership boards were instituted. The Gold Coasters, captained by Senior Luke Butts, edged out the Red Devils 596-593. The Red Devils, who were captained by senior Gil Munoz, were edged out in the final tally by just three points. This is the second time that a team captained by Luke Butts has won the team category.
The team winner and the individual winner will be honored on a plaque in the team meeting room, and each will receive an award when they return to campus.
