Sports Information Specialist Dave Loveton was honored on Coaches vs Cancer Night last Wednesday at the women's and men's basketball games vs. Oxnard.
Dave has worked for 12 years at SBCC and was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer. He writes stories about SBCC's 19 athletic teams, handles the PA duties for six teams, keep stats and maintains the award-winning Vaquero Athletic website.
"Dave is more than the Sports Information Specialist … you are the soul of the Vaquero athletic program," said SBCC President Dr. Anthony Beebe. "And we appreciate all that you do. You make sure every one of those programs feels like it's the only one.
"Many of the parents, grandparents, friends and others related to the athletes depend upon your stories and statistics to understand what their kids are doing. For all those reasons and more, I'm going to present you with the Every Day Hero Award."
