Wilson Orangemen Award
The strong tradition of the Wilson Orangemen Award dates back to the creation of the Wilson All-Sports Booster Club in 1970. One of the first tasks of the group was to create an award to acknowledge the student-athletes who were willing and able to play three sports a year for all four years of high school. Mitch Carr was the award's first recipient in 1971. His gift was a varsity jacket... a priceless item in 1971.
Today we continue the tradition of the Orangemen. Wilson student-athletes can earn an Orangemen Award by competing in three school-sponsored sports for all four years of high school. The school-sponsored sports that would qualify a student-athlete for an Orangemen would be: (one from each season)
Boys Track & Field
Girls Track & Field
The Wilson All-Sports Booster Club, in conjunction with the Wilson Athletic Department, is proud to give each student-athlete a gift to memorialize this great achievement. The Orangemen Award will be given at the Spring Sports Awards.
