New board of directors and 2016 awards announced.
On Friday, 28th October 2016, members of Nashville Kangaroos, Inc. met at Homegrown Taproom & Marketplace to thank the 2016 Board of Directors for their much appreciated work, select directors for the 2017 Board, and present awards for the 2016 season. All positions are vacated at each Annual General Meeting, and all paid up members are invited to elect the new Board of Directors.
Jeff Persson, David Harris, Evan Ling and Cliff Cosnahan were returned for another year. Maurice Howell and Tim Dunn were selected as directors for the first time. The new Board of Directors will meet on November 22nd to begin planning for another exciting year.
Following the Annual General Meeting, the Nashville Kangaroos enjoyed a social night to celebrate our outstanding teammates who earned awards during the 2016 season. Football awards were presented as follows:
Best and Fairest - John Freeman, an unprecedented achievement for a first year player. John was also recently selected to the national representative team, the USA Revolution.
Best Clubman - Maurice Howell, a tremendous asset to the Nashville Kangaroos both on the field and off.
Leading Goalkicker - Cliff Cosnahan, who moved from center to forward in 2014 to become the team’s consistent leading scorer.
Best Newcomer - Brian Domin, expecting great things from him in 2017 after limited opportunities in 2016.
Coach’s Award - Tim Dunn, who showed true utility to play forward, defense and in the center, and another great asset off the field.
With such fine leadership both on and off the field, 2017 is sure to be the Year of the ‘Roo!
