Lion football players were among a number of Ennis High students to receive recognition on Thursday night at the Knights of Columbus Hall, as everyone associated with the football program was praised for their efforts.

Lionbacker president Gary Fincher opened the awards portion of the evening by thanking former Lion football coach Sam Harrell for his 16 years of devotion to Ennis High.

Athletic trainer Chad McCune then presented student trainer Heather Novy with a 2010-11 Academic All-State Award. The Student Athletic Trainer of the Year Award, as voted on by the student trainers, actually went to both Ciara Jones and Stephanie Montelongo.

Ennis High principal David Averett presented the Academic Award to Lion football senior Adam Martinek because he had the highest GPA on the team.

Steve Marrow, the interim coach during the 2010 season, began by thanking his entire coaching staff, the Lionbackers, administrators, school board members and teachers. He went on to recognize Bubba’s Bar-B-Q, Lion game announcer Don Howard, Tye Chandler of the Ennis Daily News, Ennis Regional Medical Center, 106.9 The Ranch, athletic director Bill Cox, team parents, and the Sunday night cooking crew for the coaches.
