"Awarded to the
Lipscomb baseball player 

who most displays a love, passion and respect  for the game of baseball,

who best demonstrates
the burning desire and the work ethic
to continuously improve as a player
and become a true champion,

who displays good character
  in victory and in defeat,  and
has a deep respect for God
his family and his teammates."

"There is no substitute for a flaming desire
to be champion.
Some are not willing
to pay the price
to be a champion,
and this attitude
is the difference
between being good or great,
fair or outstanding"

-Coach Ken Dugan
