Like all other recipients, Kyle’s character on and off the court best reflects the ideals of an award such as this. Kyle was chosen to be a captain his last three years and probably would have been his freshman year if not for a coaches rule. He was the Frank Vanderlaan Award winner for the most outstanding male athlete two times. He is one of only three athletes to win this award twice.
