Wow - another award under his belt? Or should we say drawstring?

Reynold Stewart, a forward for the Douglas College Royals soccer team, has been nominated as Sport BC's College Athlete of the Year.

Last year Reynold, who has played for the Royals throughout his three years at Douglas, was named the Men's Soccer Player of the Year and 2010 All-Canadian team member by the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association. To read about his other awards, see our earlier blog post.

Sport BC's Athlete of the Year Awards recognize BC’s best amateur athletes, coaches and officials for outstanding performances in their sport. The winners will be honoured at a ceremony and dinner at the River Rock Casino Feb. 24.
