Last night 74 Outstanding High School Athletes were honored at The Records', "Athletes of the Week Annual Recognition Banquet" at the Landmark Catering Hall in East Rutherford, NJ.
High School Students from New Milford and as far away as Pequannock were immortilized in their own life like sketch beautifully penciled by esteemed artist, Charlie McGill. Mr. McGill has been creating masterpieces for the Athlete of the Week since 1954. Over 2,500 High School Athletes have been given this honor.
