The 2017 winner of the Mike Weaver Award was announced tonight. He is Hunt Stevenson, the son of Hunter and Heather Stevenson of Macon.
The presentation, which took place on Thursday, May 25, was delayed several days. As everyone gathered on Saturday afternoon, May 20, lightning was spotted in the vicinity. The presentation was delayed until the following week to get better weather.
