Kpreps is excited to announce a new award for the 2019 season – the weekly Sportsmanship Award. We have teamed up with ‘A Class Athlete’ (ACA) to recognize those individuals or groups that demonstrate sportsmanship and high character during the heat of action. This award is open to students or student-athletes who goes above and beyond to demonstrate an act of kindness or sportsmanship.
We are pleased to announce that this week’s winners are Madison’s Hunter Engle and Maranatha Christian Academy’s Nate Burdette.
After an incredible back-and-forth battle between two of eight-man football’s top teams, Hunter and Nate met at midfield and shared a moment of prayer and mutual admiration. A photo capturing their embrace and moment of prayer has been well-circulated across various social media platforms since Friday’s game.
