It is a great opportunity for students to be applauded for their efforts, according to Dr. Daniel Phelan (Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon). “It’s extremely important to acknowledge players and individuals that give their all at every practice, game or event. Those who display integrity and sportsmanship add to the success of any sport,” said Dr. Daniel Phelan, M.D.
