As The University of Kentucky Hockey Club announced yesterday, we have teamed up with the team to create the Taylor Vit Leadership Award presented by ukfansallday.com. This is a huge honor for us at the site to be associated with the award and honor Taylor’s memory in this special way.
Taylor was a senior on the hockey team when he tragically passed away from injuries sustained in a car wreck on October 10th, 2010. Taylor was known as a great leader and player, and we are proud to carry on his legacy within the UK Hockey community.
Thank you to the hockey team and their staff for helping, and naming, of this award. Thank you to Daniel here at the site for allowing us to sponsor the award. And a special thank you to the Vit family for them allowing us to honor Taylor by naming this award after him.
The first Taylor Vit Leadership Award will be given to the player that was voted by the coaching staff as the player that best shows leadership on and off the ice. The Vit family will announce the winner and it will be presented on Senior Night against Tennessee on Friday, February 2nd.
