SHELTON—Bunnell athletic director Wayne Thrall knew it wouldn’t easy taking over for a town legend.
Three years into his new gig, however, people are noticing that Thrall is doing.
Late last month, Thrall was honored as “Outstanding New Athletic Administrator Award” during the Connecticut Association of Athletic Directors at its annual luncheon.
“I’m just very appreciative the hard work has been recognized,” Thrall said. “I’m very proud of the rich history that came before me at Bunnell High School, and I only hope I can keep doing it justice.”
Thrall replaced Dave Johnson as the head of Bunnell’s athletic department in 2015.
Johnson had overseen the Bulldogs program for 34 years.
