Marvin Award Winners Denisa Lalikova '15 and Jacob Lloyd '14

Marvin and Winter Award Winners

The Marvin Award is given each season to a boy and girl who are new to Proctor for their leadership, sportsmanship, and ability.
Over the course of the season, Denisa has been a force to be reckoned with, both in regard to her play and her wit. Often hanging signs up around the locker room reminding the team to give their best, play with heart, and have fun playing the game they love, “Denny” has been a strong and consistent leader. On the ice, she brings great experience, has an impressive work ethic, and has adjusted with ease to the Proctor style of play. While some of us may have expected the transition from Slovak hockey to Proctor hockey to be a tough one, Denny quickly became a clear leader both in the locker room and on the ice, and has come to truly embody a Proctor GVH player - someone who understands the importance of humility, hard work, and a team-first attitude. She recently taught the girls how to say ‘family’ in Slovak. Well done, Denny, and thanks for being such a strong contributor to the GVH family!
Jacob Lloyd is an impact athlete!  He is poised, intelligent, graceful, strong, and agile.  At once gracious and fiercely competitive, he commits his best effort to improving himself and his team, while honoring the game and the opponent.  Each drill of every practice, whether in warm-up or a competitive segment of practice, Jacob strives to improve his skills and his technique.  Each game, he plays to exhaustion.  In all he does, he inspires others to be better.  In that sense, he is an extremely effective leader.
Jacob is a heady competitor, willing to subjugate personal goals the team; willing to sacrifice his body to complete a play; willing to play through fatigue and pain to afford his team a chance to prevail.  When confronted with disappointment or frustration, he quickly decides to persevere and prevail.  Jacob’s determination and commitment are laudable.
Leadership is one of Jacob’s strengths.  Supportive when appropriate, vocal when necessary, sharp when fitting, he consistently communicates the right message to teammates.  Most significantly, Jacob is an example of steady, determined commitment.  His effort is unfailing. His positive attitude toward team and commitment to improving never wavers.  Jacob is an exemplary leader.  Congratulations!
