Pillar: Citizenship

"Dirk was chosen to lead our team as one of our captains for the last two seasons by modeling the core values of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. Offensive linemen rarely get credit in the paper or even among teammates. However, Dirk has managed to be a leader and an encourager to not only his line mates, but also the entire team, which is the reason he is being honored with this award."
