Wallace Technical Resources received a plaque of appreciation for sponsoring the Elkridge Hurricanes, a Maryland based youth football team. Football tends to attracts kids who have a natural aggressiveness and athleticism and can be a perfect outlet to demonstrate those qualities in a team setting while building relationships with teammates and coaches.When a youngster loves football and wants to play on a school team, it can be a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate his talent and athleticism. However, no matter how talented the player, the opportunity to play football is a privilege. In order for a young player to be allowed to play, he must keep his grades in order and act as a good citizen in all endeavors. Once players who really want to get out on the field understand this, they often take care of their responsibilities so they don’t lose their chance to play.

Nominations for awards are typically due around the end of January of each year, and a vast majority of the awards are presented during a special honors luncheon at the Joint Engineer Training Conference, held each spring.
