The ROTY is chosen by every player and coach from the team. This aims to not only be an acknowledgment of ones effort through his rookie season in making the team the best it can be come nationals, but to provide the incoming rookies something to push themselves to improve their game and their lives. There is no set criteria for this award. The players’ and coaches’ nominations are based off any reason they deem fit. Whether it be on-field play, commitment to the team, study habits, financial needs, or just being a good friend that makes you a better man. Whatever reason you deem worthy is acceptable.
Henry proved his dedication and effort to last years’ team and got many of his teammates appraisal.
He has an agreeable nature off the field, whether that be having a genuine conversation with someone or engaging in friendly banter with his teammates. He is a paragon of consistency that people look to emulate as they continue to develop as players. He's a humble player that is very personable with everyone on the team. Arguably one of the most productive players on the O-Line, this mans represented the Hodags on Team USA. The only knock is that he got fired from Rockies, but you can't be perfect.
Without further ado, a big congratulations to Ted Schewe in being recognized as the Hodag Rookie Of The Year for the 2017-2018 season!
This man was voted on by his peers/coaches and had an overwhelming amount of good comments attributed to not only his play, but his character. This is a man who really improved throughout the season and completely earned quality playing time that helped with the success of the Hodags last year. It’s pretty rare that a freshman earns a starting spot at Nationals, but he proved his worth. He was — and still is — always a good friend to everyone on the team, had a great attitude, and was eager to support his teammates in triumph and hardships. Whether it be his consistent and effective play as the season went on, making a big layout goal at Stanford in hail, being the only one to detonate a beer after a very successful Eastern’s tournament, or his determination in becoming the White Wizard. He was a player that provided many laughs, and pushed his fellow teammates to get better. He consistently proved on and off the field what it means to be a Hodag, and truly embraced the Hodags as a family.
