Each year at the Oregon State Wrestling Tournament in February, TSWWF is proud to present the Tyrone S. Woods Memorial Trophy to the most outstanding high school wrestler based on academic excellence, citizenship, and wrestling achievements. This trophy is a prestigious award and represents the values and ideals as exemplified by Tyrone during his high school wrestling career and his twenty years as a US Navy SEAL. This award is not just about having the best wrestling record. It is also about recognizing an athlete who has demonstrated service to his or her community and has a commitment to academic excellence.
In addition to the application form, a one-page essay is also required that describes why you are qualified and what this award would mean to you. This essay is an important part of the award process, and it is an opportunity to showcase your personal reasons for having committed to the great sport of wrestling. As with any application, it is very important for your presentation to be neat, accurate, and comprehensive. If you have questions or need assistance in filling out the application, please use your coach as a resource or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help you through this process.
The deadline for submitting the TSW Memorial Trophy application is Friday, February 10, 2017.
