It was a night of recognition - the All-Sports Banquet at Calhoun High School, held Friday evening.

An impressive list of high school athletes were recognized following a banquet for players, coaches and family members.

The prestigious Wayne Underwood Award went to Justin Price and the Lady Red Devil Award went to Ashli Cottrell. (SEE earlier Herald story).

Athletic booster Karen Conley welcomed the athletes and parents, and introduced Athletic Director Tim Davis.

Master of ceremonies Toby Wagoner kept the evening moving along, with awards being made by school coaches.

Parkersburg South Football Coach Mike Devol (pictured left) was the guest speaker for the evening, challenging athletes with character traits that it takes to be a winner. Devol praised the efforts of high school sports at Calhoun over the years, also recalling the days of football coach Wayne Underwood. "Underwood could have gone just about anywhere he wanted to coach, but he picked Calhoun County," he said.
