“Each year Truckee football honors a devoted volunteer for their countless hours of time dedicated to our program. This year’s volunteer of the year is Al Salas. Al has lived in Truckee for 40 years. He has been announcing/spotting for Truckee football since 1983. Al has followed Truckee Football ever since his son Albie played in the 80s. He loves the spirit of Truckee sports. He wishes Truckee many more state championships. Thank you, Al, for all that you do.”

“Each year Truckee football honors a devoted fan for their undying loyalty to our boys, our team, our town. This year we honor Mickey Kumle for his love of Truckee football. Mickey has lived in Truckee since 1962. He played Truckee football from 1960-1963. His favorite Wolverine moment was when the Wolverines won the state championship four years in a row. Mickey continues to come to all the home games. Thank you, Mickey, for being such a devoted fan.”
