BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ-- Talent and hard work are easy to find when it comes to high school athletes. The challenge that separates one athlete from another, however, is utilizing that talent to make an impact. Governor Livingston student athlete Emmanuel "Manoli" Kanellos has taken this challenge to heart.

Kanellos, a three sport varsity athlete, has been nominated for the "Heart of a Giant" award. Every fall, USA Football accepts candidates from the Tri-State area to be honored as a dedicated and ambitious member of the football community. These nominees epitomize the idea of having a "Heart of a Giant" through their commitment, dedication, will, character, and teamwork.

This year, the GL senior has impacted the Gov. Livingston football program greatly. He leads the team in tackles and is a dominant, stable force as the team's middle linebacker and control center of the Highlander defense.

As a Week 4 nominee, Kanellos is extremely honored for the chance to represent the Gov. Livingston community.

"I feel very humbled to be considered as a nominee for the 'Heart of a Giant' competition," Kanellos said, "This nomination is a testament to the hard work my teammates and myself have put in for this football season, for which I am grateful for."

His position on the team spans farther than just his abilities as a linebacker. Kanellos's leadership and intelligence are essential for the GL team's success. The combination of his love for the game and motivation to win exemplifies Kanellos's nomination.

"To have the opportunity to represent the communities of Berkeley Heights and Mountainside is an opportunity I will never forget," Kanellos added.
