    May 23, 2018

    Ninety-eight senior student-athletes were honored on Saturday at The University of Scranton's 27th annual Senior Student-Athlete brunch, held in the McIlhenny Ballroom in the DeNaples Center. 

    The event featured the presentation of a plaque to each senior student-athlete as well as the presentation of Merit Awards to each student-athlete with a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or higher. The luncheon also featured the presentation of the Beining Award and culminated with seven special awards presented to student-athletes.

    The Beining Award, which is presented annually to an individual for special contributions to the athletics department, was given to Dean Corwin, the long-time radio and video play-by-play man for the men's and women's basketball teams. Corwin recently completed his 12th season calling Royals and Lady Royals basketball, and also provided play-by-play for baseball and softball games this spring. Corwin's broadcasting expertise and his general knowledge of sports have been a big benefit to the University over the past decade-plus, as he has also filled in as official scorer, public address announcer and scoreboard operator at numerous events.

    The luncheon was highlighted by the presentation of the Ron Willensky, Father Fitzpatrick, Peter A. Carlesimo and Frank O'Hara Awards.
