The awards are named after Dr. Thomas A.

Brady established a walk-in clinic in the basement of Methodist Hospital that grew into Methodist Sports Medicine.


Brady Comeback Award

The 12th Annual Thomas A. Brady, MD Comeback Award honors both male and female student-athletes at the collegiate and high school level from Indiana who have distinguished themselves by overcoming adversity or injury, and returned and excelled beyond expectations in their respective sport(s). Recipients of this award will receive a $1,000 scholarship.

C. Eugene Cato Memorial Scholarship

The Centennial Scholarship program was initiated in 2003-04 as a part of the IHSAA’s centennial celebration. This year, the program has been renamed in tribute to former IHSAA Commissioner C. Eugene Cato, who served from 1983-95. His passion for athletics and his belief in the intrinsic value of athletic competition on the formation of a child’s character enabled him to positively impact generations of young men and women with his well-known “Firm, Fair, and Friendly” approach to caring for others. Cato passed away in October of 2008.
