    Congrats Mr. Cherry!

    First Oscar of any CCL Blue team, which I think puts them above Mount Carmel now.

    I’m not sure if this counts.
    Is he playing in the largest division of film?

    Had he won this Oscar as an Alum of a smaller school Rochester, JCA, Montini, etc. his trophy would be questionable at best but as a Loyola Alum he may be able to consider his Trophy legit.

    Although there will always be an ' * ' that he wasn't really competing within the biggest class within the biggest class of Feature Films.

    This may be considered more like a Prep Bowl trophy.

    Yes, but I work for a small company, so I feel as if that doesn’t really count. :)
