Instead of giving out awards to players who have made impressive goals or outstanding plays, Holderness plans to recognize the students who have stepped up and carried their team’s luggage. Athletic Director Rick Eccleston says, “It’s nice to win, but the students need to learn that it’s about participation and about working together to accomplish something greater than one person can alone. That’s what it means to carry the luggage.” The Carry the Luggage award winners are nominated by teammates and coaches.
