Athlete of the Year!

All of the various coaches at the different high schools nominate the student that they feel should earn "Athlete of the Year". Dallin was nominated and won for our high school! Yesterday the athletic director took him to the "Outstanding Athlete Luncheon". There were 12 leagues (77 high schools) all represented at the luncheon. Dallin was a 3 sport Letterman this year and last year. Football, soccer and golf. They also take into consideration the students GPA (which is great, he got a scholarship to BYU).

Dallin is a wonderful son! He is motivated and works hard. We are VERY proud of him! Congratulations son!!! Way to put your mind to something and succeed!!!

Here is the patch that he was presented and the program...

Congratulations to your son!! It is great to be named athlete of the year and also wonderful to have a scholarship to BYU. My third daughter is headed there this fall, so I understand the requirements for scholarships. Good for him!!

And how fun you get to teach institute. If I ever "retire" from seminary, institute would be where I would want to go next.

How stinkin' cool is that!! Plus I love that he is an example of a future BYU student. I know here not many kids know about that college and it is so wonderful when our youth are great examples of the kind of students who go to BYU,

What a SUPER honor!! There are so many athletes in high school that to be singled out is awesome! What an outstanding guy! The scholarship says so much too - they don't give those out easily at BYU!

Way to go!!
