Fall Sports Awards

January 6, 2015

During assembly on Tuesday, January 6, the JBS coaching staff presented the fall sports awards from the state, our league and the media (see below) to 48 varsity athletes. Before the awards were announced, AD Peter Tasker spoke about the value of participation in sports, stressing that the greatest gain is in the development of character.

"Good morning. Whereas it too often appears that winning is the greatest gain from participation in sport if you listen and watch our media, I would argue that it is the great promise of human development and formation of character that is the greatest potential gain. If we can practice and perform in honorable fashion on the rich stage of sport, I am hopeful that our student athletes are better prepared to face the adversity of life outside of these walls, and better prepared to be leaders in their future communities. To this end, I share the following with you: A Note from a MICDS parent after the Busch Stadium baseball game last spring:

I want to compliment and thank you for the character and sportsmanship displayed by you and your baseball team last evening at Busch Stadium. I have watched my son, Jack, play baseball since he was old enough to walk and there have been many memorable moments that I will always cherish. Last night, however, stands alone at the forefront. Certainly, it was fun to see Jack beat out a dribbler. Heck, it was fun to see him make contact. But to see Jake Wood applaud the effort and then, to witness you and your team rushing out to mob Jack at third base after the final out was very special, indeed. I have never seen, in any sporting event, at any level, a demonstration of what competitive sports should be all about that rivals what you and your team did last night. You, the boys on the team and their parents have every reason to be very, very proud. This is an outstanding group of young men. My compliments to them, to you and to the parents who raised them. All the best and good luck to your team for the remainder of the season.

"To me, this epitomizes a large part of the great promise of participation in sport at the John Burroughs School. Plain and simple, the development and demonstration of character. I am pleased to say that I am privileged to bear witness to an abundance of it as I watch you all compete. So, today we honor those individuals who, according to the press and various league organizations, stood out on their respective teams this past fall"
