Travis Richley named MVP as Sardis Falcons hand out football awards

The offensive lineman was a clearcut choice after earning MVP honours in the Pacific Conference

Travis Richley took home the senior varsity MVP trophy as the Sardis Falcons football program held its awards banquet Wednesday night (Dec. 8).

Richley was a slam dunk choice after winning the Pacific Conference MVP award in early November.

“This is a significant honour,” said Falcons coach Sukh Parmar at the time. “Very rarely does a linemen receive this recognition when competing against skill players.”

Parmar added more Thursday morning (Dec. 9).

“We knew how good he was, but it did not take long for the remainder of B.C. high school football to realize he was one of the best in the province,” Parmar noted. “I have been coaching a long time and I’ve been very fortunate to coach some excellent players. Travis ranks near the top and his future is very bright.”
