The community of Forsyth and the Forsyth High School football program received an award for sportsmanship.

The Southwest Missouri Football Officials Association nominates and votes on one community in Southwest Missouri to receive the Shelby Rainey Sportsmanship Award each year.

The award is based on sportsmanship displayed by football coaches, football players, the student body, and fans at the games. This year, Forsyth High School and the Forsyth community are the proud recipients of the award, according to the Forsyth Area Chamber of Commerce December Chat.

“We are very proud of our young men,” Coach Kris Conley said. “The community has been very friendly and supportive, our guys are just a representation of the great people of Forsyth.”
