Recipient's comments: "I just go out and throw the best I can. It's better to throw against tough competition, but if its not there, I just try to break my personal records. The whole coaching staff, particularly Coach [Shirl] Dorsey, has been great and really helped me out a lot. I'm attending Western Maryland next fall to play football and track.
