Tresnit receives service award at Hall of Fame dinner
Morey Tresnit has been a fixture at Carson High School home football games for the past 18 years working on the chain crew.
And, as the owner of Mo & Sluggo’s, he helped put on Carson High’s annual Hall of Fame Kickoff Dinner.
Tresnit has been a friend and supporter of the CHS program for many years, and he was named the winner of the Milan Tresnit Award Saturday night at the Carson Nugget at the annual kickoff dinner.
“I told coach (Roman) when he called that I didn’t feel I deserved the award,” the 55-year-old Tresnit said earlier this week. “The kids have given back a lot more to me than I’ve given to them.
“Coach Roman has done such a great job since he took over the program. It has improved tremendously.”
Roman heaped plenty of praise on Tresnit, who often comes over to watch practice.
“He’s been a great friend to the program,” Roman said. “
Tresnit said he loves working the chains, but admitted he has trouble keeping his mouth closed.
Tresnit said he has many great memories of Carson football, most of them coming since Roman took the reins.
“I have a lot of them,” Tresnit said. “The last-second win against Reed (2012), beating Damonte Ranch twice last year at home , and then beating Spanish Springs (2013) with their quarterback (Hunter Fralick) who is now at Nevada.
“The biggest memory, though, is when we beat McQueen (19-6) last year. It had been such a long time since we’d beaten them. I remember a McQueen assistant telling the head coach that Carson wanted it more than they did. After that, I knew our program had become an elite program.”
Tresnit is best known for being a member of Carson High’s state championship basketball team in 1975 coached by Tom Andreasen. In fact, the team will celebrate the 40th anniversary of that accomplishment in the near future.
