FTC 7314 also received the Rockwell Collins Innovate Award. According to the judges:
- This team's innovative design allows them to score in the middle and high boxes. They consistently rescued climbers in autonomous. Although they tempted the Robot Gods to sabotage their robot, in the end they came through with flying colors in winning all their qualifying matches.
