The Rockport-Fulton High School (RFHS) athletic program produced a virtual Varsity Sports Banquet Tuesday, May 12.
The one-hour long virtual banquet video was published to YouTube in replacement to an in-person sports banquet typically held every year in May. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, RFHS was unable to host an in-person banquet this year.
Every RFHS head varsity coach created a short clip and slideshow for their team and honored every senior student-athlete in the program.
At the end of the video, the RFHS athletic program named three student-athletes as Pirate Athletics Most Valuable Players (MVP).
RFHS Pirate and Lady Pirate Fighting Heart award recipients were also named at the end of the video. This award recognizes a student athlete(s) for exemplifying what it means to have the spirit and heart of an RFHS Fighting Pirate.
