John McLendon Recipient of the NCAA Theodore Roosevelt Award

The award was named for President Theodore Roosevelt, who formed the NCAA in 1906. The award honors an individual “for whom competitive athletics in college and attention to physical well-being thereafter have been important factors in a distinguished career of national significance and achievement.” Recipients for the “Teddy” are selected by the NCAA’s Honors Committee, which is comprised of representatives from NCAA member schools.

McLendon becomes the third graduate from the University of Kansas to receive the NCAA’s Theodore Roosevelt Award, joining track & field star Billy Mills, who won the prestigious award in 2014 and Bob Dole, who won the award in 1998.
