Combat Announces Bobby Nifong AwardIt's been an amazing year for Bobby Nifong. Actually all of Bobby’s years with Combat as a Promotional Sales Rep have been memorable. This year; however, Bobby has elevated to another level to achieve some remarkable career milestones.
On the field, Bobby’s team — Combat Next Level — won the SSUSA Eastern National Champions 55 Major going 5-0 with Bobby playing a big role. At Combat, Bobby also received notable recognition by having a bat designed and named in his honor — The SWING NIFONG! Available this month and approved by Bobby, this bat is not for the faint at heart and will smash anything thrown its way! If that weren’t enough, Combat went a step further and renamed its annual award, formerly known as the Charlie Hustle Award, to the Bobby Nifong Award! Recognizing all he does for our company, the award typifies what Bobby brings to the field and work every day — a dedication and loyalty to Combat and its people, hard work and a can-do, will-do attitude. For those who have had the privilege to meet or even work with Bobby, it won’t be hard to see how this honor is completely fitting. Given this year at the Combat July Sales Meeting, Bobby was extremely honored and gracious as he gave the award to Rob Kaufman, Combat’s hard-working Inside Sales and Customer Service Representative. “It’s been an amazing ride with Combat, they are my family and to receive this honor and to have a bat made in my name has meant the world to me,” said Bobby. “I was also happy to be on hand to give the award to Rob – someone we all know we can count on day in and day out.”
Bobby was born, raised and resides in Winston-Salem (that’s when he’s not hitting the road for Combat!). Known affectionately as Papa Derb, Bobby loves spending time with his grandson Jacob teaching him that same great work ethic and turning him into a great hitter!!
