There are lots of qualities that a Womble -award winner must possess — leadership, selflessness and dedication to name a few.
According to San Marcos volleyball coach Roger Kuntz, Johnny Manzo is “the package.”
Manzo, a junior volleyball and basketball player for the Royals, received heaps of praise from Kuntz, hoops coach Jarrod Bradley and principal Norm Clevenger at the luncheon before stepping up to the podium himself.
“It’s important to treat others how you want to be treated, not only in sports but in life. It makes a big difference,” he said.
His proud parents, Susan and Louis, as well as his grandmother were present to watch him receive the prestigious award.
“I would expect you’ll see him come back next year for the academic (scholar-athlete) award,” said Bradley.
