Bohannon to Be Recognized at Musial Awards

Hawkeye Fan Shop — A Black & Gold Store | Hawk Talk Monthly — October | 24 Hawkeyes to Watch | Tickets to 2018-19 Home Games

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa men’s basketball student-athlete Jordan Bohannon will be one of the honorees at the 2018 Musial Awards, which celebrate the greatest moments of sportsmanship and those in sports who embody class and character. 
Last February, Bohannon, an Iowa sophomore, was approaching the Hawkeyes’ consecutive free throws made record. The record was held by the late Chris Street, an Iowa basketball legend who died in a car accident in 1993 at age 20. With a chance to break the record, Bohannon intentionally — and selflessly — missed a free throw to honor Street and keep the record in his name.
The awards ceremony will take place at the historic Stifel Theatre in St. Louis the evening of Nov. 17.
Other honorees include recently-inducted Baseball Hall of Famer Jim Thome, Loyola men’s basketball team chaplain Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, Florida State softball head coach Lonni Alameda, Minnesota high school pitcher Ty Koehn, and Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith.
The event is named for Stan Musial, the late St. Louis Cardinals legend who was beloved for his approach on and off the field. The show is produced by the St. Louis Sports Commission and the National Sportsmanship Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. The mission of the Musial Awards is to encourage selflessness, integrity and civility in sports and society — and to inspire people across the country to be good sports.
Tickets for the 2018 Musial Awards are on sale through Ticketmaster. Tickets range from $10 to $50 and can be purchased online at, in person at the Enterprise Center box office and all Ticketmaster ticket centers, or by phone at 800-745-3000.
