Thayer Tutt Sportsman Award

A visionary leader who helped transform Colorado Springs into a world-renowned center for national and international events, William Thayer Tutt dedicated more than 40 years to sports in the Pikes Peak region and beyond. Tutt cultivated The Broadmoor into a sports mecca, hosting major events such as World Figure Skating and Ice Hockey Championships, the first 10 NCAA Hockey Championships and numerous U.S. Golf Association amateur championships.

In addition, Tutt took an active role in major community events, such as the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and worked with civic and other sports leaders in the community to attract the United States Olympic Committee and many of its member National Governing Bodies to Colorado Springs.

The presentation of this award to individuals or organizations dedicated to the importance of sports as a way to benefit the Colorado Springs economy and contribute to the quality of life for citizens of the Pikes Peak region is a fitting tribute to William Thayer Tutt and the thousands of Colorado Springs residents who have benefitted from his contributions to the sports industry in this community.
