After each Cedar Rapids Kennedy football game last fall, you could probably find Dalles Jacobus carrying a block of wood inscribed with “FAMILY.”

Players and coaches embodied that team mantra as the Cougars went 13-1 and finished Class 4A runner-up.

Watch the video above as Jacobus, an Athlete of the Year finalist and University of Iowa preferred walk-on commit who also qualified for state wrestling and won the state shot put championship, explains why that team was so successful.

Be sure to meet the rest of the Athlete of the Year finalists and look for the winner to be announced Sunday.
