Senior Isaac Vance (center) is congratulated after receiving Humanitarian Award

At 5'9", Isaac Vance doesn't immediately stand out next to his Kent State football teammates, but his big heart and care for others clearly make him one of the tallest on the team. Vance, a senior wide receiver, was surprised Dec. 17 as the Humanitarian Award winner ahead of the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. The award is given annually to a player from each team for exemplary community service and leadership efforts. With an infectious smile and overwhelming positivity, it's easy to see why Vance stands out as a person who cares deeply about helping others.
