The Basha Bears want to recognize two outstanding young men with the 2010 Scholarship Award Winners.  This year an additional scholarship was offered along with the annual Jason Earl State Farm scholarship which has been given out for the past few years.  The Basha Football Boosters handed out its first annual scholarship to a football player who met certain guidelines set forth by the Boosters.

The Winner of the Jason Earl State Farm Scholarship for 2010 season was Dean Vo
The Winner of the Basha Booster Scholarship for 2010 season was John Tanguay

Both of these tremendous young men stand for what Basha football is all about.  They led not only on the field, but in the classrooms as well as are both very active within the school supporting other programs and getting involved with school spirit.

Congrats go out to both young men!!!!! Remember to keep us posted next year while you are in college.

On Dec. 19th members of the Basha Bears football program joined hundreds of others to raise awareness and money for research for Mitochondrial Disease here in Arizona.  The First Annual Walk held at Kiwanis Park, was a huge success raising over $40,000 for research.

Althought we did not have a huge presence at the walk, the players and families who participated, had a great time interacting with others and taking some time out before the holidays to make a difference.  Since this was the first annual of the walk, the Basha Football Program made a commitment to make this an annual thing and will continue to support the fight for Mitochondrial Disease.

The Players who participated in this years event were:

Seniors – Zach Williams(#99) and John Tanguay(#55)
Juniors – Blake Tamarkin(#95), Drew Mahooty(#78), Bryce Cole (#18) and Alex Benites (#52)

Next Years event will be held in November with more details to come later.
