LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky tight end CJ Conrad has won the Pop Warner National College football Award, given annually to a graduating senior who made a difference on the field, in the classroom and in the community.
Conrad was presented the award on Friday at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.
The award was created in 2010 to honor the player who demonstrates Pop Warner’s values of sportsmanship, academics and community service.
Conrad created “Tuesdays with CJ,” a program the LaGrange, Ohio native used to visit the Kentucky Children’s Hospital each week.
In 2017, Conrad was chosen to participate in a weeklong service trip to the Dominican Republic, where he visited with residents of impoverished communities.
