|High School Comeback Player of the Year Award Sponsored by Presbyterian Sports Medicine|
The purpose of this award is to elevate the community's awareness of football as a safe, healthy and character building sport.
The player has received evaluation and treatment for a medical adversity by either his high school trainer, area physician, or physical therapist in the preceding 24 months.
The player has subsequently returned to the playing field and is cur-rently participating in football during this cal-ender year. The medical adversity does not have to be directly related to a football injury. This medical adversity could be from injuries sustained in an automoble accident or medical diseases such as cancer, diabetes or asthma. The winner will be chosen by a review panel selected by the Charlotte Touchdown Club. The award will consist of a trophy for the winner and a $1,000 honorariam to the winner's high school athletic department, designated for training room equipment Each finalist will receive a certificate recognizing him as a finalist for this award
Each high school is strongly encouraged to submit an application this year. Even if your worst medical adversity appears minor, it very well may be an excellent example of a young man's desire to push himself beyond most for the good of the team and love of the game of football.
