The Tewaaraton Foundation has named Richie Moran as the recipient of the 2012 Spirit of Tewaaraton Award. Richie will be honored at the Tewaaraton Award Ceremony May 31, 2012 , at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
“The Spirit of Tewaaraton award is presented to an individual involved in the sport of lacrosse, who nobly reflects the virtues of the Tewaaraton Award and its mission, and who, over the course of his or her life, has made a significant contribution to society and the lives of others. Past recipients include Dick Edell, Diane Geppi-Aikens, Sid Jamieson, A.B. “Buzzy” Krongard and Roy Simmons Jr.
Coach Moran exemplifies the true spirit of the game, both on and off the playing field. His lifelong dedication to his players extends beyond the field and beyond their years at Cornell. He played an instrumental role in the early years of the Tewaaraton Award and is a worthy selection as the sixth recipient of the Spirit of Tewaaraton Award,” said Jeff Harvey, chairman of The Tewaaraton Foundation.”
