"Listen to Ryan Clements" is a long running joke from way back when everyone used to make those "Listen to" shirts. We have a special award called Listen to Ryan Clements to Autumn from a funny incident at Bradenton where Ryan was on the mic asking everyone to stand up to make more room. Autumn flat out refused. So, she gets the Listen to Ryan Clements award for not listening. Nice!

Tary got the Old Man Down Award for, well, going down on an injury at Bradenton. Get well quick!
Profile: Tary Valle

Jake and Nate Ilardi's grandma got the Grandma of the Year award for taking them to all of the GFL events. Those are two fine young men that have been raised.

We gave The Future Looks Bright award to Keenan for obvious reasons.

Tony Walsh and his Mr Nice Guy persona led us to create the Soft on the Inside Award.

We created an annual special award called the Mike Rogers Award that will go to the person who most embodies the spirit of Mike and what he's been through and done. Thanks again for everything, Mike!
