A brief history of the Outstanding Football Player Awards Program


The origin of these awards dates all the way back to before 1969 when the Lititz Lions Club and the Elizabethtown Lions Club first sought to recognize the outstanding football players from high schools in the Lancaster-Lebanon League.  The Lititz Lions Club chose to honor a former Lion and Warwick High School coach - Bernie Rider. The Elizabethtown Club named its award for a former Lion and coach at Elizabethtown High School - Bill Frantz. More recently, the Columbia Lions Club elected to recognize one of Columbia's former coaches - Jack Yohe. Over the years, there have been many changes in the schools and the way the league is organized. There have also been changes in the way the awards have been handled, but the awards have always been for the purpose of recognizing significant achievement on the playing field. Today,the tradition continues with the joint "Frantz-Rider-Yohe" awards.
