Jim Henry Award

High School Player of the Year

Jim Henry would not allow this award to be named after him if the criteria was only based on football ability. He insisted that this award must be based on the student’s academics as well as contributions to school and community.

Mini Max Award Program

Our high school scholarship program has been a long tradition of the Maxwell Club.

High school players are nominated by their coaches and fellow athletes for outstanding performances on and off the field.

Area high school athletes are honored at weekly dinners in the fall and the Jim Henry Award is presented to the individual who has exceeded in his athletic as well as academic abilities.

For his efforts, the winner of the Henry award receives a scholarship for college.

This Years Winner…

The winner of the 31st Annual Jim Henry Award, Area High School Player of the Year is Jon Taylor of Salem High School.

Facts About Jon Taylor

Jon Taylor always had a penchant for doing something that belied his age. Where other high school players dreaded going over game film, the Salem 6-foot-1, 215-pound senior tailback embraced it. In fact, Taylor would invariably approach his coaches after each film session about what he could do differently, what he could do to get better.
