It was a full house at the Frantz Inn as the Pistons organization celebrated this past year by recognizing their player’s accomplishments at the 2019 Awards Banquet Dinner.
Everyone from the Pistons had the chance to talk with the people in attendance, whether that be billet families, families, support staff, sponsors, and the volunteers, and thank them for supporting them through another successful season for the club.
The evening began with a delicious pulled pork meal provided by the kitchen staff at The Frantz, a Q & A session, and then the coaching staff handed out some hardware and plaques to the award winners.
Head Coach and General Manager Paul Dyck and Assistant Coach Calvin Bugyik concluded the night by recognizing the graduating and departing players in Tyson McConnell, Troy Williams, Easton Bennett, Brendan Martin, Boedey Vaeth, Doug Johnson, Nico Labossiere, Riley Vautour, and Matt Radomsky, and presented them with their jerseys for all of their hard work and leadership in the 2018-19 season.
