The Volunteer basketball team had its annual pat each other on the back postseason awards banquet last night, and the following awards were presented:
- JaJuan Smith and Major Wingate were named the most-improved players. (Okay, I’ll play along with that one.)
- Dane Bradshaw took home the Team Before Self Award and the John Stucky Lifter of the Year Award. (Good, good, good.
- The Burchfield-Moss Most Courageous Award went to Jordan Howell. (Hmmm. Not sure what this is about. Any ideas?)
Basketball head coach Bruce Pearl is still trying to fill his assistant coaching vacancy.
Offensive Coordinator David Cutcliffe took quarterbacks Jonathan Crompton and Bo Hardegree with him to a graduation ceremony at the Morgan County Correctional Facility where coach Cut addressed prisoners who were receiving their GED or a vocational trade certificate. That ought to give EDSBS something to play with.
