To maintain three different sports over a four-year career at Guilderland High School is a remarkable achievement – one that the Guilderland Lettermen Foundation and the Guilderland Athletic Department recognize with a Twelve-Season Award.
In 2020, the Lettermen Foundation, now in its 23nd year, is collaborating with the Guilderland High School athletic department to honor the achievement of nine student athletes, hanging a banner in the student-athletes name that will commemorate their achievement.
“It’s an honor for the Lettermen Foundation to support these great representatives of our athletic program,” said Lettermen Foundation Vice President Greg Barcomb, a 2007 Guilderland High School graduate. “As a former Guilderland athlete, I have great respect for those who show such great effort and consistency in different sports across an entire high school career.”

Award winners were introduced at Guilderland’s annual athl
etic awards night, which was held virtually and recognized again through the Lettermen Foundation’s social media sites in lieu of recognition at the Foundation’s annual golf outing, the Guilderland Classic, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The tournament, which supports the annual Lettermen Foundation awards and other philanthropic activities in the Guilderland community, will return in 2021.
