Holy Cross senior and member of the men’s hockey program Jeffrey Reppucci, of Newburyport, Mass., has been named one of five finalists for the prestigious Coach Wooden Citzenship Cup, an award given to a collegiate and a professional athlete who have made the greatest positive influence in the lives of others.
Founded by Athletes for a Better World, a non-profit organization committed to changing the culture of American sports, the Wooden Cup is unique in that it is open to athletes in all collegiate and professional sports. Nominations are open to every division and conference in college sports. The award recipients will be announced at a ceremony held at the Atlanta History Center on April 22.
Reppucci, a Russian major, is joined by Aaron Craft (Ohio State, Basketball), Kelly Dennis (Chestnut Hill College, Tennis), Dau Jok (University of Pennsylvania, Basketball) and Elizabeth Tucker (Notre Dame, Soccer) as the five finalists for the collegiate award. This year’s professional recipient will be Drew Brees, the 2009 Super Bowl MVP-winning quarterback for the New Orleans Saints.
