This year we are continuing to promote our positive athletes here at Pope and partner with the Positive Athlete program headed by Hines Ward and former Pope parent, Scott Pederson. Last year, Pope had 60+ nominations and we are looking to increase that number this year. We know from daily observations that Pope has a large number of athletes who exhibit positive traits through their athletic endeavors whether it is overcoming a serious life changing issue or showing grit and determination while competing or simply demonstrating our expected high level of sportsmanship.
Nominations can come from anyone-coaches, administrators, teachers, parents, fans, opponents, teammates, peers, etc.
Not only are athletes nominated, but coaches are recognized as well.
The deadline for nominations is March 16th. Nominate TODAY.
Later in the spring, we will have our annual Pope Positive Athlete Awards Banquet, where we recognize each Pope nominee and pick a Most Positive Male Athlete, Female Athlete, and Coach of the Year.
To nominate a student-athlete, just visit: www.PositiveAthlete.org
If you have any questions about the program, be sure to contact Ryan Pederson at firstname.lastname@example.org as he is happy to help you clear up any questions, comments or concerns.
