PressBox, GBMC Honor Hereford's Alicia Kozlowski

January 26, 2016
PressBox and GBMC have teamed up to honor one high school student-athlete each month who demonstrates sportsmanship, school spirit, hard work and dedication. 

The latest honoree is Hereford High School indoor track, outdoor track and cross country runner Alicia Kozlowski.

GBMC Unsung Hero: Hereford's Alicia KozlowskiTo nominate a student-athlete for consideration, click here.  

Kozlowski, a senior, was nominated by Hereford High School track-and-field coach Brad Duvall, who characterized her as "the perfect team player."

During her time at Hereford, Kozlowski has been a part of several state championship teams but not necessarily the star.

"Through all of her success in running, she has never been the best athlete on the team," Duvall wrote. "She is always the perfect team player, picking up points for second, third, fourth place or putting together a great leg on a relay."

In nominating Kozlowski for the Unsung Hero award, Duvall emphasized Kozlowski's role on the team.

"She would be a superstar on most other teams," Duvall wrote, "But because she has such talented teammates, she is a perfect piece to the puzzle and integral in the success of the program."

In addition to coaching Kozlowski on the track, Duvall also taught her AP physics class last year and described her as "an extremely high performer in the classroom."

Duvall also noted Kozlowski's contributions to her school and the community around her. 

Kozlowski works in the rec department and spends time in the summer volunteering to build houses with her church group.

Duvall described Kozlowski as "integrally involved in the school" and said simply, "I can't think of a better candidate for this award."
