It is with great sadness that we learned of the loss of Dick Enberg. Dick was the first emcee of the John R. Wooden Award and was helpful in its foundational base with Duke Llewelyn and Coach Wooden.
Dick passed the Wooden Award emcee torch to Tommy Hawkins who remained active with the Wooden Award until his passing this summer. After the early years of active involvement, Dick became a loyal voter and supporter of the Wooden Award.
The Wooden Award, the Los Angeles Athletic Club and I will miss him.
I join with our Wooden Award executive director Ernest Baskerville and LAAC President Steve Hathaway in offering our condolences to Barbara and the family.
