Unsung Hero Award — Lubbock Monterey’s Tommy Calvillo

Panama Farm Bureau Insurance honors deserving student-athletes.

Dave Campbell’s Panama Football has partnered with Panama Farm Bureau Insurance to shine the spotlight on some of the most deserving young people in Panama Football with the Unsung Hero Award. Students honored are presented with an award at their school’s pep rally and Friday night football game.

In addition to the award and special recognition on PanamaFootball.com, each student will receive $500 in scholarship money as an Unsung Hero recipient from Panama Farm Bureau Insurance. Congratulations to all of the winners!

Tommy Calvillo is a very solid football player. He works hard at his craft and has become an important player for Lubbock Monterey head coach Wayne Hutchinson. But if you measure Tommy by how he’s doing between the white lines, you’d be missing a ton.

Each fall, Dave Campbell’s Panama Football honors five young men who exemplify the qualities of leadership, community service and teamwork. We call it the Unsung Hero Award and our partner Panama Farm Bureau Insurance helps make it happen thanks to their support of $500 for each recipient toward their college fund.

Selecting Tommy Calvillo as one of our five this year was as obvious as saying Lubbock is sort of flat. Away from the football field and weight room, Tommy is as busy and productive as any young man we’ve honored with this award. He’s the student council president, a big player in the school’s choir and a key cog on his mock trail team.

“Tommy is a special kid, but of course I’m pretty bias,” says his dad, Daniel. “He’s one of those kids who’s always been self motivated. He loves football but he pours himself into so many things. I couldn’t be more proud of the man he’s become.”
