Nominate an athlete for a Brady Comeback Award

This prestigious event was held at the Indiana Roof Ballroom on April 19, 2018 to recognize Indiana student-athletes and role models. The Comeback Scholarship Awards honor male and female student-athletes at the collegiate and high school level who have overcome adversity or injury. A $1,500 Comeback Scholarships were presented to: Ajah Stallings, North Central School; Ronald McDuffey, George Washington Community High School; Brandon Kinser, Caston High School and Zoey Johnson, IUPUI. The Brady Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes individuals who, through their connection to Indiana, have made outstanding contributions in the field of athletics, and demonstrated consistent ideals of sportsmanship. This award was presented to Rocky Bleier, who was a member of the 1966 national Championship Notre Dame Football Team, Vietnam Veteran who was awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star and won four Super Bowls with the Pittsburg Steelers. The inaugural Indiana Wounded Warrior Brady Comeback Award was given to Josh Bliell.
