The Jeff Dunlop Leadership Award
Submitted By Webmaster on Sat 03 31, 18
As many of you already know, the London Junior Knights lost a dear friend and an invaluable contributor to our program with the passing of Jeff Dunlop this season.  Over the years Jeff wore many different hats within the LJK organization.  As a result, he managed to touch the lives of many different people involved in our great game.

The London Junior Knights, with the generous support of Integrated Digital Solutions (IDS), are very pleased and proud to unveil a new annual award in memory of Jeff Dunlop. 

The Jeff Dunlop Leadership Award will be awarded annually to the player in Major Peewee or Minor Bantam who best demonstrates his or her leadership through consistent hard work.  This is a “lead by example” kind of award.  This award helps to celebrate the intangibles found in a high quality hockey player and an impressive young person.  The Jeff Dunlop Leadership Award is not about goals scored or points recorded or GAA.  Instead, this award acknowledges the unparalleled and consistent work ethic of an especially dedicated athlete.

The London Junior Knights are proud to announce that the inaugural winner of this prestigious award is Dyson Wilcox (Peewee AA).  Dyson is described as a “character player” who never takes a shift off.  He works as hard in practice as he does in games.  He is said to possess “that old school work ethic” and, according to his coaches, Dyson routinely sets the example for others around him in the categories of hard work, leadership and positive attitude.  Dyson is a very worthy recipient of this distinguished award.

Great work Dyson!
