This prestigious award is presented to the High School senior scholar athlete who best exemplifies the spirit of community stewardship, academic excellence and accomplishment on the football field.

Award Criteria:

The recipient of this award will have demonstrated a commitment to the classroom, community and athletics and will receive a $40,000 scholarship provided in $10,000 annual grants upon their continuation of community service and academic achievement in college.

To continue receiving the funds, the student must maintain full-time student status by completing at least 12 credit hours each semester, maintain a 2.75 GPA and participate in at least two separate community service projects while contributing a total of 24 hours of service to the community.
