Mitch Moyer '19 Recipient of the 2018 Michael DeLucia Sportsmanship Award
Archmere senior Mitch Moyer has been named winner of the 2018 Michael DeLucia Sportsmanship Award, presented annually to a senior football player from a Delaware Catholic high school. The award is presented to a player who has exemplified outstanding performance, attitude and character on and off the field. The award was presented to Mitch by Kevin DeLucia at the Archmere team breakfast at the Waterfall Banquet and Conference Center on December 16th. Mitch was a guard and defensive tackle, earning First Team All-State honors on both sides for the Auks, and is also a standout member of the lacrosse team. This year, the Archmere football team boasted a 9-1 record in the regular season and made the Division II State Tournament.
The Michael DeLucia Sportsmanship Award was created by Salesianum alumnus Tom DeLucia and his wife, St. Elizabeth alumna Pat, in honor of their son, Michael, who died from meningitis in 1971 at age 18 months. This was the third straight season an Archmere player had received the DeLucia Award, which has gone to 69 players in its 47 years.
Mitch will be playing football next year at Columbia University in New York. After receiving the award, Mitch told Mike Lang of The Dialog that he was “honored and humbled to receive this award and be included with a group of men with such great character.”
