Isaacs nominated for statewide award

BAR HARBOR — Mount Desert Island High School senior football player Gilbert Isaacs has been nominated for this year’s Frank J. Gaziano Memorial Offensive Lineman Award.

The award, which was first distributed in 2010, goes to a senior lineman who displays “high levels of integrity, honesty and athletic citizenship” and who possess “personal standards and accomplishments which are positive models for others.”

Winners are decided based on scholastic achievement, service in schools and the community and on-field success. Among other requirements, nominees must obtain letters of recommendation from their respective athletic directors and principals and type a one-page essay explaining their goals and accomplishments on and off the football field.

Two awards will be presented, one for offensive linemen and one for defensive linemen. Winners are set to be announced Jan. 26 at the Augusta Civic Center.
