LOUISVILLE, KY—On June 6, 2013, Custom Quality Services paid homage to NFL & UofL defensive running back Lenny Lyles with a fundraising dinner banquet where it presented the 2013 Lenny Lyles Award.
The inaugural winners were selected by a special nominating committee and were the first Lenny Lyles Award trophies presented at Papa John Stadium’s Brown & Williamson Club. The three 2013 Lenny Lyles Award winners were: Lois Taurman, Samuel Moore and Julie Hermann.
The presentations featured special guest speakers including Bellarmine University’s Head Basketball Coach Scott Davenport and Mayor Greg Fischer among others. The award trophy, designed by famous Sculptor, Ed Hamilton, was presented to each of the three award recipients who were recognized for excelling in the sports world during their lifetimes and who, like Lyles, have a history of giving back to the Louisville community.
Lyles, who passed away November 20, 2011, was a Louisville Central High graduate who became a four-year starter (1954-57) in football at the University of Louisville where he was a trailblazer in the integration of the Cardinal football program.
