Chuck Ealy Undefeated Spirit Award

Congratulations to my Dwayne Morehead Jr. for being selected as one of 10 to receive the Chuck Ealey undefeated spirit award. Father, Dwayne Morehead Sr.: "It's truly a honor to receive such an award from a man's Foundation who truly represents the words leadership, spirit, and undefeated, as a former University of Toledo stand out he led the team to a perfect 38 and 0 record. After that, Mr. Ealey went on to play in the Canadian Football League in which he was the first ever African American quarterback to win the Grey Cup. I could say more but like the kids say... Google him! I would also like to thank the area media who were part of the selection process and felt that he was deserving of such an honor as a junior. This award is typically presented to seniors. We raised Dwayne to know that no individual award comes to the individual without the support of a village, so a special thank you to family, friends, coaches, teammates and Stritch. Be remarkable, no limits!"
