ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Florida Citrus Sports has selected ESPN personality Lee Corso as this year’s recipient of the the Howard Palmer Award, the organization’s highest service honor.

The award will be presented at this year’s Member Celebration on May 18 at Full Sail Live.

Corso becomes the 28th recipient of the award, which is presented annually. The Orlando-area resident and former football coach has been a friend of Florida Citrus Sports for decades, most notably as the featured speaker at the Team Selection Committee Kickoff Dinner each fall.

“Lee is a legend beloved by millions of college football fans and you’ll not find a more genuine, generous, celebrity that works as hard at returning that affection ,” said FCSports CEO Steve Hogan.

“From speaking at our stadium’s ceremonial reopening in 2014 to his countless hours of entertainment at our Team Selection Committee Kickoff Dinners, I can’t thank him enough for the time and support he has given to Florida Citrus Sports over the years.”

The prestigious Howard Palmer Award is a tribute to an individual who continually strives to make significant contributions to the Florida Citrus Sports organization and its efforts without regard for personal recognition.
