South Florida continues to honor its players with awards – awards with misspellings.
Well, those phonetically challenged folks at USF made another blunder Wednesday when senior tight end Evan Landi tweeted out a photo of his Lee Roy Selmon Award, which is given to the player who shows “the greatest courage perserverance and determination in pursuit of team goals.”
Now, I’ll give you a minute to look at it.
Not only is there a glaring lack of punctuation, but the word “perseverance” is spelled wrong.
I get it. It’s a tough word to spell. And really, it sounds like there should be an extra “r” there, but this is unacceptable. Either South Florida needs to do a better job of proofreading its awards or it needs to find another company to etch them.
The award is a nice gesture, but the execution, especially as an institution of higher learning, leaves a little something to be desired.
