Michael Pifer: High School Sports Unsung Hero

PSR Logo
The Unsung Hero award recognizes local high school coaches and student-athletes who have dedicated themselves to sports and academics, but traditionally have not received the deserved attention.

The selection of recipients is based on sportsmanship, scholastics, dedication to the sport and team members, success on the field, relationship with officials, school district personnel, the community, and current and former team members.

CoGo's is proud to present the March 2015 High School Sports Unsung Hero award to:
Michael Pifer, Penn Trafford High School

Michael played tight end, defensive end and long-snapper for the Warriors football team and was a three-year member of the wrestling team…  Ranked the fourth best long snapper in the Class of 2015 by Kohl's Professional Camps and had the fastest average snap time in the class with his time dropping to as low as .69 seconds… Michael signed a letter of intent with United States Naval Academy and will matriculate to Annapolis this fall.

“Michael is a very disciplined kid. He has a great work ethic and he will do very well at the Naval Academy. He is their kind of a kid,” – Penn Trafford head football coach John Ruane

“Michael has a great work ethic and he's been a leader since we've had him. It's that drive that will make him successful at the Naval Academy, I have no doubt about that,” – Penn Trafford head wrestling coach Rich Ginther

“Michael is a great choice for the Unsung Hero honor. He’s a wonderful representative of a Penn Trafford student-athlete,” – Penn Trafford athletic director Kerry Hetrick
