James P. Shea
Outstanding Sportsmanship Award

A sportsmanship award has been given annually since 1947 to an outstanding senior athlete at Junipero Serra High School.  In 1966 the award was named for Serra Alum James P. Shea from the Class of 1958 who is still classified as missing in action in the Vietnam War.  This is the highest honor that Junipero Serra High School confers on a graduating student-athlete. 

The athletes are nominated by the head coach of each sport and then voted upon by those coaches.  The criteria for the award is:

1.      Participate in two or more varsity sports in senior year.
2.      Show good sportsmanship.
3.      Demonstrate above-average athletic skill.
4.      Possess a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.0 or better.
5.      Demonstrates a positive Christian attitude.
