Tom Leach announces 2020 ‘All-Resilient Team’ honoring athletes who overcame adversity

From Tom Leach, The Voice of the Wildcats,

We are excited and proud to announce the latest edition of the “All-Resilient Team,” which honors student-athletes from Kentucky high schools who had to overcome adversity to participate and/or excel in sports in the past calendar year.

“Year in and year out, we hear these stories about amazing  young people in our state and this year is no different.  Hearing about the obstacles these young men and women had to overcome is always inspiring,”   said Tom Leach, voice of the Kentucky Wildcats.

Nominations are sought from high school athletic directors and the team is honored at the annual KHSADA awards banquet each spring.  The students also get recognition via ‘salutes’ on ‘The Leach Report’ radio show’s statewide network.  The awards and the radio spots are made possible by longtime sponsors Keeneland, Bumblebee Team Sports, Star Manufacturing and  the Stoll, Keenon, Ogden law office.

This year’s team will be honored at the Kentucky High School Athletic Directors Association annual banquet.
