Outstanding Graduating Senior

The most prestigious award honors a graduating senior player who is nominated by fellow players, coaches, siblings, etc. This award does not necessarily go to the strongest player in the games but rather honors the player who personifies the qualities of self-motivation, kindness, determination to help others succeed in the games.

In 2005 Shanika Owens from Cass Tech in Detroit, Michigan, was the runner-up for this award. Duane Littleton from Weir High School in Hancock County, West Virginia, was the 2005 Outstanding Senior Player.

Pictured below are both players with their coaches, Jimmie Mathis and Betty Smith.
