Kanaley & O'connor
The most prestigious honor awarded to a Notre Dame student-athlete is named in memory of a former Notre Dame baseball player and University trustee (see p. 109). The Byron V. Kanaley Award has been presented since 1927 to senior monogram athletes who have been most exemplary as students and leaders. The awards are named in honor of the Weedsport, N.Y., native and 1904 Notre Dame graduate who was an outfielder with the Notre Dame baseball program. Kanaley went on to a successful banking career in Chicago and served as a lay trustee of the University from 1915 until his death in 1960. Eleven Irish baseball players have received the award, including current Mid-American Conference commissioner Rick Chryst ('83) and 2000 recipient Jeff Perconte. The well-rounded quality of Notre Dame baseball's 2000 senior class was validated at the season-ending All-Sports Banquet, which pays tribute to the 26 varsity sports teams while recognizing a variety of award winners. Irish baseball players were recipients of two of the most prestigious awards in 2000, with Perconte receiving one of five Kanaley Awards presented that night while catcher Matt Nussbaum received the Francis Patrick O'Connor Award, presented annually to one male and one female student-athlete at Notre Dame who best embody such virtues as team spirit, inspiration, caring, courage, honesty and patience. The award is named after a student-athlete who died in 1973 following his freshman year at Notre Dame (Pat O'Connor was the son of William "Bucky" O'Connor who played guard in football for Notre Dame in the 1940's).
