Weightlifting Announces 2013 Joel Ferrell Winner
Weightlifting Joel Ferrell 2013 Award Winners
We are honored to have had in attendance all of the athletes who participated in this year’s AAU Junior Olympic Games. Each year at the Junior Olympic Games we award athletes with an award named after a former AAU President and Vice President of the US Olympic Committee. He was chair of the AAU Junior Olympic Program for many years and was very instrumental in the growth of these Games. This most prestigious award recognizes outstanding accomplishments and sportsmanship of an athlete representing each official sport at the AAU Junior Olympic Games.
We gladly present this year’s award for Weightlifting to Perri Prevost. Perri is a senior at Zachery High School in Zachery, Lousiana. Perri is a three time AAU Junior Olympic Games Champion for Best Lifter. He has also earned the title of state champion in motorcross and Olympic Weighlifting. This 19 year old is a true competitive athlete!
We honor him for his hard work and dedication to the sport and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. Thank you for participating in the AAU Junior Olympic Games!
