After rushing for 151 yards, scoring two touchdowns, and grabbing one interception against Surry High School last week, the U.S. Army Baltimore Recruiting Station announced Colonial Beach running back Travis Cundiff as the “Army Iron Man of the Week,” and the best two-way high school football player in the battalion’s northern Virginia recruiting territory. Cundiff is the sixth player this season to receive this prodigious honor.
The criterion for receiving the iron man award is tough. The player must demonstrate excellence on both ends of the gridiron — offense and defense — as well as strength in character. The Army Iron Man exemplifies the quality of Army strength in every aspect of his performance.
Whether you’re a fan, coach, athletic director or a member of the media, you have until noon each Monday during the regular season to nominate a player for the Army Iron Man of the Week presented by Jostens. High school football fans voted on the winner of the Iron Man award online at www.TheSportsFlash.com.
