Grand Canyon State Games CEO receives Distinguished Arizonian at NFF and HoF Dinner

When I was asked by Grand Canyon State Games CEO Eric “Wid” Widmark to accompany him to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Dinner for him to receive the Distinguished Arizonian Award for 2013 I didn’t hesitate to say yes.  Wid has been an instrumental figure in creating and developing one of the Nations Largest Sports Organizations in the Country.  Offering both Winter, Summer, and Native Games to all of the residents of Arizona.  A former College and Pro Football Player.  Wid embodies hard work and determination in all that he does.  A proud American, Wid challenged the young men receiving their awards that night to always go out and be the leaders not only on their Football Teams but also in their communities.  Never settling for mediocrity in your life.  I have know Wid since 2000 and each opportunity I am around him I become a better  person learning from his wisdom and tenacity for life.  Congrats again Wid for all that you do for Sports in Arizona.
