Congratulations and Thank you!!!
Congratulations again to all of our young cheerleaders and football players for a great season! We hope everyone had fun and learned about their sport. We look forwarding to seeing everyone again for our 2015 season! Have a safe and good year!!
Mark Sager, BYF Director received the first-ever Allen Boswell Director's Award. Allen was the AOYFA League Commissioner until he passed away unexpectedly one year ago. Allen not only befriended Mark and maintained a good personal relationship but mentored him professionally as well. Allen always reminded everyone that all of the AOYFA League football and cheerleading organizations were/are, "all about the kids." This award is voted on by the league board.
Mark also received the 2014 Gary Barauskas 2014 Sportsmanship Award. This award exemplifies team spirit, dedication and going above and beyond the requirements and expectations of the director and organization. Mark's ultimate goal was to earn this award; he feels it shows more pride for the entirety of all of our youth participants and their efforts than the final scores or records. This award is voted on by all league directors.
Mark received both awards Saturday, November 8th, 2014 during the National Conference Championships held at Medina High School stadium.
These are both very honorable and well-deserved awards for all of Mark's time-consuming effort, tireless dedication, volunteer and community support and love of helping the young people of our city.
