I gave a special award for the "Most Inspirational competitor" in honor of my late friend, 
Willie James Austin.


Nate Bolling was the winner of this award & I will donate $100 to the "Austin Foundation" in Nate Bolling's name.  It says, "Standing out among others with your positive impact today..."
