Appling County High School student athletes Jordan Vann and Connor Wilkerson were awarded the NAPA Auto Parts/Larry Csonka “Blue Collar Player of the Year” award on March 19, at the Bearfoot Tavern in Macon.
Vann and Wilkerson received the honor along with eight other high school football players from the state of Georgia. This award was created to honor hard working, blue collar players that, according to NFL Hall of Famer Larry Csonka, “show up for work every day and never complain, unsung heroes who spend little time in the spotlight but play pivotal roles in their team’s success.” NAPA Auto Parts knows the pivotal role these young men play and this award is their way of congratulating a job well done.
