Nick Wallace of St. Rose is the very definition of hustle. During Friday night’s eighth grade boy’s basketball matchup versus Sacred Heart of Florissant, Nick did everything his team needed him to do. He’s a good player and contributed positively with his scoring and rebounding. However, it was Nick’s intangibles that caught the eye of the Sportsmanship Brigade.
He dove to the floor for seemingly every loose ball. Nick absorbed charge after charge while encouraging his teammates to raise their games to a new level. He proved that playing hard while respecting the game can be done and done well. The Sportsmanship Brigade was proud to honor Nick Wallace with this week’s award.
The Sportsmanship Brigade is a group of Sports Commission volunteers who attend youth sporting events looking for acts of good sportsmanship. Athletes, coaches, parents and fans who exhibit good sportsmanship are rewarded with a certificate of recognition and a gift card to a local business. For more on the Brigade, including scheduling and volunteering information, please visit sportsmanship.org or call 314-345-5130. Until next time…
Be a Good Sport!
