Russell Blunt “Be A Good Sport” Award

Russell Blunt

The Russell Blunt “Be a Good Sport” award was established as a cooperative between the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) and our Durham Sports Club. The award is presented to a high school athlete who has exemplified acts and activities that mirror good sportsmanship. All applicants for this award are selected from a larger group that has submitted their scholastic and academic resumes for consideration to the NCHSAA as North Carolina’s top athlete(s). Our nominees are generally a mix of male and female athletes from across the state of North Carolina.

An award of this stature was formulated to honor Mr. Russell Blunt for all of his contributions to the world of athletics; most notably track and field. It has been established that Mr. Blunt’s teachings on sportsmanship, leadership, integrity and life’s responsibilities have benefited many whom he coached throughout his career. Local, national and international athletes have all been influenced by his instruction and friendship.
