We created this award to honor the player that most exemplifies the willingness to serve. That distinction is one that Former NFL football Player Pat Tillman demonstrated in how he lived his life before being tragically killed in Afghanistan. Pat Tillman was known for being a leader by example and going out of his way to help teammates. People that described him said he was always very humble about any accomplishments that came his way. This award represents the guy on the team who most served others and exemplified Pat Tillman, while never directing attention to himself.
~~We are asking each family to cast one vote for the member on their team that most embodies Pat Tillman’s positive leadership, work ethic and willingness to help teammates, while not directing attention to himself.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the newest member of the Irish Football Hall of Fame, Mr. Don Sandoz.
Don began his Irish FB involvement in 2000 as coach for Irish Youth FB, Don then became director/president of IYF from 2003-2011. He then became founding member and President of ERAVE and then Vice President of SSYFL.
Don is in his second stint on the Irish Football booster Board of Directors, his first spanned 2006 - 2010 and he is currently the Vice President since 2013.
Don and his wife Billie met at Iowa State University in 1988, married in 1990 and have lived in Rosemount for over 18 years. They have three sons, all current or former Irish FB players. Tyler, class of 2010 was elected Captain as well as Pat Tillman award winner, Ben was class of 2012 and Sam is a current senior, class of 2015.
Don is a die-hard Nebraska Husker fan, but he will joyfully tell you “there’s nothing more exciting than an IYF Game at Shannon Park!”
Don’s commitment to Irish football is beyond compare! His heavy involvement over the years have helped drive our program to grow and prosper.
Please join the Irish football community on Thursday September 25th, 2014 at the Rosemount High School PAC as we celebrate Don’s selection to the Irish Football Hall of Fame!
Congratulations Mr. Sandoz!
