Brooks-Huwar-Leadbetter Sportsperson of the Year Award and accompanying scholarship will be awarded to an athlete(s) who competed in at least one full season in either District 9 or District 10 and who display qualities of being a good person, a leader, community-minded and wanting to make a difference. The award was born out of an impromptu act of sportsmanship during a game in 2020 between rivals Clarion and Clarion-Limestone. The scholarship is being run through Bridge Builders Community Foundation in Oil City. The scholarship and the award were the ideas of Bryan Huwar, who then reached out to D9and10Sports.com and Bridge Builders to make the award and scholarship a reality.
