The following will be used as the guidelines for the awards for Athlete of the Year:
1. All players will be listed by grade and sex.
2. Numbers will be assigned to all athletes.
3. All athletes will be awarded 5 points for each sport they play.
4. All athletes will be awarded 10 points for each nomination to All-Regional and All-Conference. (Not all sports have All-District designation, therefore, it will not be used in scoring)
5. All coaches will be supplied a list of their players, and asked for nominations for each grade. There will be no limit to the number of athletes a coach can nominate.
6. After a tally of all points, the Board of the Buc Booster’s will review the anonymous results. In the event of a tie and/or close results, coaches will be asked to aid in the final decision. The coaches will receive a ballot with the athletes names.
7. Any athlete that collects a landslide of points, coach’s input will not be needed.
WHO ARE THE “BUC BOOSTERS”?
The University School Athletic Boosters Club is a private, non-profit, 501 © (3), volunteer organization that promotes the athletic programs at the school. Established in 1997, the ‘Buc Boosters” (our more popular name) believe that a successful athletics program is important if not essential for our school community. Our purpose is to encourage public and private support of sports activities. The financial support provided by the boosters is intended as adjunct funds to University School’s support of its athletic programs. Although our financial support is critical, promoting school spirit and building strong community for our school family is essential. We believe that sports are important for building character and developing the student-athlete’s potential to its utmost.
WHO DO “BUC BOOSTERS” SUPPORT?
We support University School’s 18 Middle School, Junior Varsity, and Varsity sports teams, over 250 exceptional student-athletes, 11 outstanding coaches, numerous team managers, scorekeepers, and clock keepers who represent our school throughout Tennessee and beyond. We also support our school’s 45 dedicated teachers and administrators who prepare student-athletes academically and characteristically.
Our Bucs’ TSSAA rosters included over 250 names. Over 50 of those participated in multiple sports. They carry a reputation throughout our Watauga Valley Conference and District 1A/AA of having unusually high GPAs and academic standards to play, which are higher than TSSAA requirements. We’re exceptionally proud of our student-athletes. They are determined, and even when not victorious; we believe they are champions on and off the playing field.
WHAT DO “BUC BOOSTERS” DO?
Holding many events per year including membership drive, Spirit Rally, Homecoming Dinner, Holiday Poinsettia Sale, Bucs Spirit Wear, and Spaghetti Dinner/Talent Show, Buc Boosters raises enough funds to provide uniforms, banners, equipment and pom-poms, as well as paying tournament fees, sending coaches to clinics and supplementing travel and food expenses.
The annual University School Sports Awards Ceremony is a memorable event when we acknowledge the accomplishments of our sports teams. Buc Boosters presents Outstanding Athlete Awards to the top female and top male athlete at each (freshman-senior) grade level. Two senior athletes are awarded as Outstanding High School Career Athletes recognizing their entire career contribution to University School.
