Eric fits the mold of previous winners of this award perfectly. He is ranked 5th in his class; and carries a GPA of 97. He is a member of the National Honor Society and was nominated as a National Scholar while representing Pennsylvania at the Young Leaders Conference. He is on Student Council and has served as a Peer Facilitator for the past three years.

Athletically, his statistics are equally impressive. As a co-captain of this year’s State Championship Red Tornadoes he was a 3rd Team All State End. He was great on both sides of the ball, having 8 ½ quarterback sacks and an interception to go with his 49 receptions and 6 TC catches.

He was also a co-captain of the basketball team, where he lettered three years. He also lettered two years in baseball and two years in track and field.

Eric will attend Bucknell University where he will continue his football career. He is an outstanding choice to join the line of outstanding athletes who have claimed this award previously.
