Through the efforts of the All Sports Association’s annual banquet and summer golf tournament the group helps fund numerous worthwhile sports organizations and charitable causes. Our primary beneficiaries of the All Sports Association are the Boys & Girls Club of the Emerald Coast, Special Olympics Florida- Okaloosa, Eleanor J. Johnson Youth Center and Okaloosa Walton FCA.
All Sports Association Banquet is proud of its long and distinguished list of past speakers which can be seen here.
Since 1970 the All Sports Association has brought together the finest athletes in Northwest Florida. Each February at their annual Awards Banquet they honor the area’s top High School, Collegiate, Amateur, Professional, Special Olympic athletes and individuals who have fostered youth activities. Also presented at the banquet is the Wuerffel Trophy honoring the college football player who best combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement, and the Col Al Byrne Award recognizing a local individual who demonstrates outstanding support of youth athletics. In 2009 the inaugural Taylor Haugen Trophy was established and presented. The award is in honor of Taylor Reid Haugen who passed away from injuries sustained in a football game while playing JV wide-receiver for Niceville High School.
