The Sam Pawlak Award

Sam refereed understanding that sport transcends what happens on the court, and in the end it's all about the character of the people who play, coach and officiate. Unfortunately, Sam has suffered an "L", but as a person he has already won the championship, is an MVP, and a member of the Hall of Fame.

Board 44's Board of Directors is proud to announce an annual award in Sam's name to the coach and official who emulates Sam's character, integrity, sportsmanship and understands that there is much more to basketball than "W"s.

Nominations for the next Sam Pawlak Award are now open for 2017/2018

Nominations close March 1, 2018
