Former Rockford Football Player wins award at Wayne State Football Banquet

The Wayne State University football team held its 2018 banquet at The Dearborn Inn.  Head coach Paul Winters concluded his 15th season by announcing several individual team honors.

Graduate Student fullback Randy Garvin (Rockford, Mich.) was presented the Randy Guzowski Award, which goes to the individual who has demonstrated team leadership and shown exemplary school and community citizenship.  Guzowski won three letters as a WSU football player and spent 15 years on the WSU Police Force.  Garvin, who earned his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology in August of 2018, began his Sports Administration Master’s program in the Fall of 2018.  He played in 32 career games for the Green and Gold and received Academic All-GLIAC recognition each of the last four seasons.  After spending his first two years as a linebacker, he switched to fullback for his final two seasons, while also seeing significant playing time on special teams, including 29 games on kickoff return.  He has volunteered more than 100 hours over the past two years with such places as Gleaners Food Bank, Salvation Army, Better Detroit Homeless BBQ, speaking to elementary school students, sorting and distributing food at Central Detroit Christian Community Development, and participating in WSU’s Basic Needs Drive.
