This award is named in honor of someone who has been dedicated to football in Innisfail for a decade. Someone who helped lay the foundation for the Innisfail Minor Football Association as we know it today. Wally Genz has shown the kind of heart, dedication, and commitment to the values of Cyclones football that we hope trickles down to all of the players that step out in that white and blue jersey.
This award is a $200 scholarship that goes towards the player development camp of the recipient’s choice. There is one scholarship awarded at the Pee Wee level, and one at the Bantam level. The winner is chosen based off a combination of their written essay, and coaches evaluation. The essays are submitted to the executives without any names attached and they evaluate how well the players answered the essay questions. The coaches are then given a list of names and evaluation criteria. The combined scores are then tallied, and a winner chosen.
