The Rock Award

The Rock Award was first presented to Martin Rich by Glen Willsey in 1975. Since then, tradition has dictated that the award be passed from Rock to Rock (or to a Rock and a Pebble if the Rock will be graduating) in an appropriate season ending ceremony. The Rock is often awarded to the hardest working gymnast who has overcome significant obstacles to his success or to the gymnast that can always be counted on when the going gets tough.
