The 27th annual Academy’s Awards of Sport were held Nov. 10-11 on the Academy’s campus in Daphne, Alabama.

There have been many great classes over the past 27 years and the composition of this year’s class is certainly as good as any.

“In our eyes, each and every one of the honorees and trustees are champions in their own right,” said Academy President and CEO Dr. Thomas P. Rosandich. “Thank you most sincerely to everyone who made this a very memorable Awards of Sport celebration.”
