Cedar Bluff Wins Sportsmanship Team of the Year


Cedar Bluff was selected as this year's Fellowship of Christian Athletes/Grace Radio Sportsmanship Team of the Year. This is the first time that Cedar Bluff has won the team of the year award and only the second time that a Cherokee County school has won the yearly award (Sand Rock in 2008). The Tigers were selected from about 40-50 schools in East and Northeast Alabama. Each week during the High School Football season, 90.7 FM and FCA team up to present The Fellowship of Christian Athletes/Grace Radio Sportsmanship Award to an area high school football team. The awards program began in 2001, making this season the 15th year of the program. Every week during the prep football season one school is recognized for displaying the highest standards of character, commitment, respect, fairness, and responsibility. At the end of each season one of the ten weekly winners is chosen as the Sportsmanship Team of the Year. That team gets the Sportsmanship Cup (which is passed each year from school to school in the spirit of sportsmanship) and t-shirts for each team member and coach. The FCA/Grace Radio Sportsmanship Award winner is announced each Wednesday morning at 7:40 during Grace in The Morning on 90.7 FM. A trophy is presented to the winning squad each week, usually during the school's pep rally on Friday. A sportsmanship banquet kicks off each season during the summer at Jacksonville State University. This banquet provides a free meal, a great Christian speaker, information on the award, and an emphasis on the importance of sportsmanship to each area high school. The 2015 awards program is presented by Buster Miles Chevy/Ford, Webb Concrete, Noble Bank and Trust, In-Line Electric, and Wells Fargo Investors. 2015 Season - Weekly Award Winners Week 1 - Southside Panthers Week 2 - Walter Wellborn Panthers Week 3- Glencoe Yellow Jackets Week 4- Gaylesville Trojans Week 5-Ohatchee Indians Week 6-Saks Wildcats Week 7-Coosa Christian Conquerors Week 8-Jacksonville Golden Eagles Week 9-Cedar Bluff Tigers Week 10-Etowah Blue Devils
