End of Year Player Schwag (gifts)

Sending out our Seniors in style, HC McClain and OC Bogan put in work creating the perfect commemorative for our players. These helmet plaques (name plates added later) replaced the usual costly trophies, watches, and or expensive merchandise, keeping our meager program budget above water. They also represented a more unique and emotional reward.

As you can see, it is simply a split helmet (that otherwise would have been discarded) mounted on a stained wood frame that can easily be hung. With 17 total plaques to create, McClain and Bogan cost-effectively cut, cleaned, stipped, painted, and mounted these through the end of December to present to the players at their January Banquet. Players were also presented with Bi-District Champs/Regional Champs/State Quarter Finalist T-shirts of the season.
