Guilderland Lettermen Foundation Honors “Twelve-Season” Athletes
Fourteen GHS student athletes are recognized
Three different sports over a four-year career at Guilderland High School – that is the definition of a twelve-season athlete. In 2018, the Guilderland Lettermen Foundation is proud to recognize 14 student athletes who accomplished this difficult feat.
The Guilderland Lettermen Foundation, now in its 21st year, is in its second year of collaboration with the Guilderland High School athletic department to honor the achievement of these student athletes with a banner that will hang in the rafters of the high school gymnasium.
“To be a twelve-season athlete takes commitment and perseverance,” said Guilderland High School Director of Athletics Regan Johnson. “We are pleased to be able to recognize this and thank the Lettermen Foundation for their vision in helping us establish this and their continued support to assist us in sustaining this great honor for our student athletes.”
“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.”
