    More than 1,000 fans of all ages jammed the Cleveland Sports Awards, the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission’s ninth annual benefit at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.
    Paul Dolan, Dan Gilbert and Randy Lerner, owners of the Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Browns, respectively, were honorary chairmen of the event presented by Medical Mutual and the 2009 Cleveland Auto Show. Al Adams and Steve Demetriou were co-chairmen of the dinner that followed an opening sports highlights video and welcome by emcee Jim Nantz, CBS sports commentator and three-time recipient of the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association’s Sportscaster of the Year Award.
    Between remarks by GCSC Chairman Bob Kain and President and CEO David Gilbert was the awards presentation to this year’s recipients who were amateur boxer Raynell Williams; Gilmour Academy tennis player Lauren Davis; and Ohio State University wrestler J. Jaggers. Gilmour Academy freshman and team basketball player Eric Anderson, Jr., who has had a prosthesis since his left leg was amputated when he was 10 years old, received the Cleveland Clinic Courage Award. 2008 Cy Young Award winner, Cleveland Indians pitcher Cliff Lee received the Professional Athlete of the Year Award, and special recognition was given to world-renowned Olympic Gold Medallist and World Figure Skating Hall of Fame member Scott Hamilton. The program concluded with the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award to Chuck Kyle, head varsity football coach at St. Ignatius High School, his own alma mater.
