Kevin Ollie to Receive Saint Francis Award

Kevin Ollie will be following in Jim Calhoun's footsteps in yet another way.

Ollie will be the recipient of the Saint Francis Award at the 29th annual Fransiscan Sports Banquet and Silent Auction on Tuesday, June 10, at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington. The award is given annually to an individual who "honors Franciscan values while excelling on the playing field."

Calhoun, a past winner, has always had a special place in his heart for the Fransiscan Life Center and Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care, which benefit from the annual banquet.

Also honored that night will be longtime sportswriter Jackie MacMullan, who'll receive the Saint Clare Award; recently retired Sacred Heart men's basketball coach Dave Bike (Dean of Sport Award) and Guy DeFrances, Sr. (Jim Calhoun Community Service Award).

Special recognition will also be given to Jon Proto, a defensive tackle at Mount Ida College; the North Haven and Southington football teams; and Connecticut Special Olympians.
