The Steinmark Award honors Freddie Steinmark, who excelled in football, basketball and baseball while attending Wheat Ridge High School in the early 1960s. Steinmark also was an outstanding student and was active in several school and community-oriented endeavors before attending the University of Texas, where he helped the Longhorns to the national football title in 1969. Steinmark died from cancer in 1971 at age 22.
One boy and one girl will receive the Steinmark Award and these final recipients will be selected by a committee of athletic directors, coaches, and former Steinmark Award winners.
Congratulations to Addison O'Grady from Grandview HS and Avery Shunneson from Thomas Jefferson HS as the 2021 recipients of the Steinmark Award--the most prestigious award for a senior student-athlete in Colorado.
