Kearney High School
The Bob Van Tine award is presented annually to a senior male and female athlete at each Kearney school who best exemplify the attributes that former Hub Sports Editor Bob Van Tine admired in high school athletes, including all-around athletic ability and participation, scholarship, sportsmanship, leadership and attitude. Bob Van Tine was the Kearney Hub sports editor from 1956 until his sudden death in 1977. Bob is remembered for his dedication and passion for covering local sports. He was honored by many organizations over the years for his service to youth in the community, and in particular for his contributions to the Little League program as a coach and director for many years. Recipients are selected by their coaches. The Kearney Hub is proud to present this award each year in Bob's honor and we congratulate these outstanding athletes.
