Every week, we will bring you four student athletes that have been nominated by their school's athletic director, coach, or you! We will write a brief description as to why they are deserving of the award and the rest is up to the fans to vote for the Scholar of the Week. After the votes are tallied, we will announce a winner on Friday. At the end of the regular season a new poll will take place.
Each of 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.
Here are the first week's nominees and a little bit about them from the person who nominated them:
Brian Lennon – DL – Perry Meridian High School: "Brian is a hard worker both on and off the field. He leads by example and his fellow teammates look up to him. Brian worked hard all summer to become a better football player to help his team. He is currently enrolled in AP classes and works extremely hard in the class room. He plans on attending college and hopefully playing football after graduation. The students in his school look up to him based on his leadership skills. Brian is the youngest if four and is loved by all."
Daniel Molloy – S – Decatur Central High School: "The hardest working and caring person I know. He has a 3.5+ GPA. On the field last year as a first year player he was named All Mid-State Conference. This year he was picked as a pre-season All-state safety. Daniel Molloy by far deserves this award!"
Austin Alberson – LB/TE – Bellmont High School: "Austin has been a starter for the team since his sophomore year and a team captain for the last two years. Austin has attended college prep classes all 4 years and has been on the Honor Roll the entire time he has attended Bellmont. He currently has a 3.95 GPA."
Cam Smock – QB – Roncalli High School: "Cam is not only a good player, but he is a great leader on and off the field. He excels academically. Cam never meets a stranger and while he is outstanding in all aspects he is extremely humble."
