Deadline to enter is April 28, 2014

We're excited to announce that we've teamed up again with our friends at Russell Athletic to bring you the Always There Award. Last year's inaugural Always There Award winners were Helen DeSantis and Mark Davis, two individuals who were always there for their community's student athletes.

Left to Right: Taylor Vernier, Director of Marketing at Russell Athletic; Mark Davis; Helen DeSantis; Coach Tony Dungy

We want to continue to honor those individuals who probably don't get much recognition, even though they are a huge part of your team's success. We all know a person like this: the parent who washes uniforms in between double-headers. Or the mentor that volunteers their time to shuttle kids home after games and practices. They're the unsung heroes that are having a positive impact in the lives of your student athletes and your community.

Have someone in mind? Submit their name below and tell us in 1,000 words or less why he or she deserves to win. We'll pick four winners this year. Each winner and a guest will get to have a special breakfast with Tony Dungy on May 16, 2014 in Tampa, Florida! They'll also receive a Russell gift bag for themselves and a $1,000 athletic equipment grant for their high school of choice.
