Michigan Tech Head Football Coach Steve Olson has named offensive lineman Aaron Curtiss the recipient of the Bill Hauser Memorial Award, given annually to the team's outstanding spring player.
"Aaron had a great spring camp and has put himself in a great position to battle for significant playing time this fall," Coach Olson said. "He definitely fits into our two-deep and I feel like he can make some big contributions for us on the field in 2017."
Curtiss, who hails from Coopersville, Michigan, appeared in the final game of the 2016 season against Findlay and worked hard during spring camp in preparation for the 2017 campaign. He will be a junior on the field when the season kicks off Aug. 31.
"Not only did Aaron have a tremendous spring camp, he really worked hard this offseason in the weight room to get stronger and become more athletic," Offensive Line Coach David Sartin said. "Aaron has always been a hard working student-athlete and this offseason his hard work really showed. He moved himself up the depth chart and truly has a chance to help us win football games next fall. I'm extremely happy for Aaron earning this award."
The Huskies will open the 2017 season at Sherman Field on Thursday night August 31st against Truman State. The kickoff is slated for 7 p.m.
