As a part of the IHSA Do What’s Right! Sportsmanship Program, member school personnel and licensed IHSA officials have the ability to recognize acts of exemplary sportsmanship and integrity that occur in IHSA events throughout the school year via the Sport A Winning Attitude Report (SAWA). Those who are recognized receive a special certificate from the IHSA and select SAWAs are featured here on the IHSAState website.

The SAWA Report below on the Springfield Southeast High School football team was submitted by an IHSA football official:

"My crew wishes to compliment Coach Lauber and his varsity team for their sportsmanlike conduct and solid play this past Friday. Coach Lauber maintained his sideline in a professional manner and it was reflected in the disciplined and focused attitude of his players. Though they did not win the game, they sported a winning attitude throughout the contest. We were impressed."
