Michael Irvin Headlines the 2nd Annual North Texas Positive Impact Awards

09.18.2019

Presented by Insperity

The second annual PCA-North Texas Positive Impact Awards, held at Las Colinas Country Club on August 20th and presented by Insperity, gave us the opportunity to celebrate the best in our North Texas youth sports community. The evening celebrated all that is good in the North Texas Youth Sports Community - great coaches, exemplary student-athletes, and special communities - dedicated to Doing Sports Right. 

First, we recognized the following Triple-Impact Competitor® scholarship recipients as they embark on their college careers:

  • Kayla Aston, Midlothian Heritage HS
  • Maya Coumpy, Ferris HS
  • Sean Payne, Keller HS
  • Pierce Woodall, Coppell HS

We were also proud to recognize the following Double-Goal Coach® Award Winners:

  • Cory Alexander, Irving Boys Baseball Association
  • Jacqueline Brown, Westside Bulls
  • Gerald Shelbon, Diamond Hill North Side Youth Association

Beyond recognizing our Scholarship winners and our Double-Goal Coach® Award winners, the two main highlights of the evening were recognizing special Community Impact Award to longtime PCA-North Texas partner Forney Independent School District and hearing guest speaker, NFL Hall of Famer and Dallas Cowboy great Michael Irvin.

Since partnering with PCA, Forney ISD has thrived both on and off the playing field. “We clearly see the positive effects of our partnership with the PCA in Forney ISD, but our work in seeking best methods is never done. We will continue to improve and grow, and the PCA will continue to be a common language for us as we do,” Weaver explained.

After Weaver accepted the award, Dallas Cowboy great Michael Irvin and emcee for the evening, Erin Hartigan of FOX Sports Southwest "wowed" attendees with their engaging Q&A. As always, Irvin was dynamic, bringing excitement to the event that helped PCA raise funds to support youth sports throughout the Dallas Metro area.


The event included reception and silent auction prior to dinner and closed the auction with a hotly contested live auction segment that was highlighted by Michael's willingness to personalize multiple autographed footballs. We also hosted our first Fund-a-Cause to generate support for PCA-North Texas and that culminated with a spirited $100 Paddle Battle with an autographed ball going to the last paddle standing!

Thank you, Michael, for helping us transform youth sports in Dallas!
