Seth Tuttle, a West Fork, Sheffield prep athlete and basketball star at the University of Northern Iowa, is the featured individual on the 2015-16 IHSAA Sportsmanship-Citizenship posters.

This year’s poster is the 24th produced by the IHSAA since starting of the program in 1995 when Ames High and Iowa State University graduate Fred Hoiberg was featured. The Association annually chooses a former prep athlete, male or female, to be featured on the poster. The selected individual is not only a remarkable athlete but is renowned for their citizenship and sportsmanship which have been the core values of the IHSAA since its creation in 1905.

Tuttle’s poster will be available for viewing on the IHSAA website this week. It will also be mailed to the IHSAA member schools for display in high school, middle school, and elementary buildings with the goal of encouraging young students to maximize their abilities and opportunities in educational-based activities.

Tuttle is currently playing professionally in Germany.
