Inaugural Unsung Heros Awards & Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

Local Prep Athletes to be Honored

With the NFL Playoffs heating up, it's definitely a great time of year for football fans. The NFL Conference Championship Games take place on Sunday January 20.

Later that evening, thanks to Jeffrey Coprich & The Inner City Youth Foundation, Southern Californian sports fans have an opportunity to celebrate and honor the best local prep student athletes at the Inaugural Unsung Heroes Awards and MLK Celebration "An Evening of Champions" held at Celebrity Centre International Garden Pavilion in Hollywood.

The event is a black-tie affair with an awards ceremony and showcase of several talented performers including the LA Inner City Mass Choir.

Award recipients are being celebrated for their success on the field and in the classroom as well as their contributions to the community.

Top notch student athletes expected to be honored include recent Nebraska commit Terrell Newby, UCLA commit Mossi Johnson, Cal commit Khalfani Muhammad, Washington Huskies commit Jermaine Kelly, USC commit Chris Hawkins and Sacramento State commit Jihad Vercher. CLA will be providing media coverage and interviews during the event.

The celebration of these athletes serves to unite the community and honor the ideals set forth by the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The event embodies the spirit of the Inner City Youth Foundation whose objective is clear: to promote safe, healthy and non-violent environments for at-risk youth to unite and flourish in Arts, Music, Entertainment, Self-Esteem, Character Building, Community Service and Mentoring.

CLA is honored to be a part of "An Evening of Champions" and looks forward to a glorious night that promotes the supreme talents of our best and brightest student athletes.
