Indiana University’s new football coach Tom Allen will give the keynote address, and the evening will culminate with the announcement of three new and special awards: the male athlete of the year, the female athlete of the year and the prestigious Josh Speidel spirit award.

The June 7 event at The Commons is aimed at recognizing area prep athletes who have excelled both on and off the field, and the gala will bring together the student-athletes, families, friends, coaches and the public in a countywide celebration.

Doors open at 5 p.m. Dinner, catered by Henry Social Club, starts at 5:30 p.m. followed by the program and awards presentation.
