Each week of the Indiana High School Football season, Ivy Tech Community College will honor a student-athlete excelling both on and off the field.
Every Monday, 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:
