In addition to winning a state football championship in November, Dompierre is now one of three finalists up for a fitness award from Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder.

“I feel proud because I like to work out a lot,” said Dompierre. “A lot of people have supported through this and other stuff.”

On Thursday, Dompierre will be visiting the Capitol in Lansing and at Ford Field in Detroit, where Eric will find out if he is the winner of the ‘Accepting the Challenge’ award.
