During the January 20 meeting of the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional Board of Education, RFH freshman Jack Velcamp was presented with the 2014 “Unsung Hero” Award from the Jersey Shore Chapter of the New Jersey Football Officials Association (NJFOA).

NJFOA Shore Chapter Member Dennis Heard presented Jack with the award, which was created in 2005 to honor football players and students who demonstrate dedication in the face of adversity. The annual honor is funded by the Manasquan Elks.

The son of Marianne and Joe Velcamp of Rumson, Jack has a form of dwarfism known as Achondroplasia that prevents him from participating in the game of football. Nonetheless, he has made positive contributions to the RFH program – first as a waterboy, and now as head of sideline operations. He also works with the RFH basketball program and Head Coach Chris Champeau.
