  • Garrett Oakes is a very polite young man. He cares about others and is well-liked among his peers. He has an infectious smile and greets everyone with a yes ma’am or no sir attitude. I wish I could box his attitude for others.

  • Chaz McDonald, Jefferson High School. Is the most talented and decorated high school wrestler I know. He is such a team player on and off the mat always willing to help and give 110% of himself where needed. He would be an amazing candidate for this award.
