In typical TOB recruit fashion, safety prospect Josh Sessoms from Southern Nash High is the latest winner of Tom Suiter’s Extra Effort Award. For those of you like me who played high school sports in NC (or at least all of NC that matters: Raleigh and anything to the east therefrom… I kid Charlottans and Triadites and people with one leg longer than the other) then the EEA requires no introduction. It was elusive. It was special. It was an award that I recall was only won by two guys from our highschool in the five years I was there.
Simply, it was and remains a great way to recognize kids who are champions in the classroom, in the community, and of course on the field to steal a line from Tom O’Brien. The link will be provided once WRAL gets it up. It’s worth a watch. This kid, from all accounts, is a great young man who will make us proud to be Wolfpackers for years to come.
Congratulations to Josh, and best of luck to him as he moves forward with his football career and educational pursuits. It would be a shame not to also congratulate TOB and his staff for winning the favor of young men who are true student athletes of fantastic character.
