Last Monday we went to Ft Smith to attend the Ft Smith Radio Club Football Awards for Western Arkansas and Eastern OK. Ryan was the Clarksville Offensive Player of the year and Skylr was the Defensive Player of the year from Clarksville. Incidentally, Ryan met Skylr on his first day of First Grade when he enrolled in January after being homeschooled. They hit it off then and are still friends today!
Ryan was also awarded the first ever Steve Rinke Hustle Award. Steve was a sportscaster from Clarksville who had worked in Ft Smith the last few years before passing away earlier in 2011. It was especially nice to bring the award to Clarksville and Ryan definitely hustled this year!
Tony Cherico, former Razorback, All American, All SWC player was the keynote speaker and presented Ryan with the award. Good stuff, now if the college coaches would just call with an offer!
