They had to contend with circumstances  of the pandemic impacting their families, communities, schools, teachers, academics, practices, coaches, and  games; yet they consistently rose to meet those challenges and performed extraordinary feats on the fields, in  their classrooms and in their respective communities. On behalf of the entire Board of Directors and all the  members of the Maxwell Football Club, we congratulate and salute this exceptional group of student-athletes  on being 2020 Mini-Max Award winners and wish them much success in their future endeavors.”
