The 77th Maxwell Football Club Awards Gala included a cast of current and future football stars at Revel’s Ovation Hall on March 14.
Paying tribute to the game of football, all it does to hone character and teamwork applicable to most facets of life, and the people who play the game at every level has been the Maxwell Football Club’s mission statement since its inception 77 years ago. It is the oldest club of its kind in the country and has recently taken the game worldwide, creating an arena-style football league in China.
On Friday night, March 14, the club — which first hosted its gala awards presentation in Atlantic City 10 years ago in a move spearheaded by its president, former Eagles standout and current ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski — found a new home in Revel’s Ovation Hall. A sold-out crowd marveled at the new digs, as did all the awards recipients (100 percent of which attended the gala) from National High School Player of the Year Will Grier (a senior at North Carolina’s Davidson Day School bound for the University of Florida) to this year’s professional player and coach of the year, the Denver Broncos’ Peyton Manning and the Eagles’ Chip Kelly, respectively.
