HEISMAN NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL AWARD! 
It is a banner day for the sport of snowshoeing.

Soleil Gayloard, Telluride, Colorado, won the Female award in New York City on Friday, December 8, 2017. The male winner, Jackson Destin, lives in Delray Beach, Florida. 


Sports Director of the United States Snowshoe Association, Mark Elmore, said "We are so proud and happy for Soleil in her win of the Wendy's Heisman National High School Award for 2017. Singlehandedly with this deserved honor, she raises the sport of snowshoeing on the global competition map. Twice winning the US Junior National Champion (2016, 2017) and member of those USSSA National Junior Snowshoe Teams, she also claimed a World Snowshoe Federation Champion title in 2017. This is such a thrill for all of us to share with her and her family."
 

This annual award in conjunction with the college Heisman Trophy presentation recognizes the elite of the elite with academics and sports linked with community involvement. A female and male winner from state competitions moves on to the national levels where the list is pared to the top five per gender. From that list, Soleil and Jackson won 2017's prize. 
 

She receives at $10,000 college scholarship as well as national honor and recognition during the ESPN broadcast of the college Heisman Memorial Trophy presentation and the Wendy's High School Heisman National Winner patch. That patch will look very good on her USSSA National Team jacket she received just before the competition.
