First Annual L7 Scholarship

First Annual L7 Scholarship

The L7 award is given to a high school athlete “who has demonstrated qualities consistent with L7. L7 doesn’t so much stand for Lucky #7 but rather the belief that luck is largely a byproduct of persistence, hard work, and positive attitude in tough or unfamiliar situations”

Noah and Larry gave out their first L7 Award and scholarship to a high school senior football player with Crohn’s disease. Joe Contino has shown incredible grit in his Crohn’s and athletic journey. Congratulations Joe!
