On Wednesday, September 20th, the Tomahawks were thankful and honored to have former BGMS Student-Athlete, Josh Whitman, take the time to stop by practice and visit with the team. Josh was a Tomahawk, Harrison Raider, 2-time Academic All American Tight End at the University of Illinois, and played 4 years in the National Football League. Josh is now Athletic Director at the University of Illinois. The BGMS football award is named in his honor. It was very generous of him to take time out of his busy schedule to stop by and talk about the life lessons learned from football, as well as the lifelong memories and friendships he still has today from his BGMS football days.
