Indianapolis- The Indianapolis Colts have partnered with Ivy Tech Community College to honor the top scholar athletes in the state. The Ivy Tech Community College Scholar Athlete of the week program will allow fans to nominate their local high school football players that excel both on and off the field.
"Ivy Tech is proud to partner with the Colts and My Indiana Football. We know how hard student-athletes work not only on the football field but also in the classroom and we want to recognize them for their efforts," said Jeff Fanter, Vice President Communications/Marketing for Ivy Tech Community College.
Every Monday, four student athletes will be chosen and featured on Colts.com. Fans will then vote throughout the week for their Scholar Athlete of the Week. After the votes are tallied, the Colts will announce a winner on Friday.
At the end of the regular season, the weekly winners will be released via a poll for the Ivy Tech Community College Student Athlete of the Year. Fans will vote throughout the IHSAA playoffs with the winner being recognized during the last Colts home game at Lucas Oil Stadium and being awarded a scholarship to Ivy Tech Community College.
