Awards

 
Christopher Daniel Mello
Memorial Award
bbbbbb 
This perpetual award is presented anually to the winner of the Rye-Harrison football game and bears the names of the top graduating scholar athletes from each team.
Chris Mello, an outstanding student and athlete from Rye High School Class of 1994 was killed on September 11, 2001 onboard the first airliner to strike the World Trade Center. Both this award and the scholarships are the result of the outpouring of respect and affection for this young man, who at age 25, was taken from us.
The Mello family, all of Chris' friends and the community hope that the tradition of the Rye-Harrison game will continue and that it will maintain the same spirit of competition and sportsmanship that were so much a part of Chris Mello's life.

 Award
for Athlete of the Week

Launched in September 1951 the “Sports Award Program” each week salutes the local high school athlete whose performance on and off the field sets an “outstanding example of achievement and sportsmanship for the youth of Westchester County.”

The original selection process has proven so successful and fair that it remains virtually unchanged today.  Each season, four impartial panels of five judges are chosen from among Westchester coaches and athletic directors consisting of a chairman and four members who serve on a rotating basis as the selection committee each week.  Each Wednesday during the school year, the panels meet with the program moderator to choose the prestigious “Athlete of the Week.”

Nominating ballots, prepared and submitted by coaches and athletic directors, are reviewed by the panels.  Athletic accomplishments from the previous week are prime requisites.   However, in making the final choice, the judges weigh many factors including academic achievements, leadership, citizenship, character, school and community activities.  Con Edison has no involvement in the selection process.

In addition to the prestige of being names “Athlete of the Week,” the honoree and his/her school receive a framed Sports Award Certificate with the inscription “…for setting an outstanding example of achievement and sportsmanship to the youth of Westchester County.”  A highlight for the winner and his/her coach is being interviewed by the program moderator, Bob Wolff, on the “Westchester Scholastic Sports Page” at radio station WFAS.  The taped interview is broadcast on WFAS, aired the Friday following selection and is accessible on their web site.  Additionally, an article about the winner and his/her accomplishments also appears in the Gannett Journal News

As the Spring season winds down, Con Edison celebrates all the weekly winners accomplishments at their annual banquet at the Hilton Rye Town. Each student athlete is recognized by moderator Bob Wolff and four scholarships totaling $25,000 are awarded to very deserving scholar athletes.
