Congratulations to Ethan Schwesinger for receiving an award from the National Football Foundation, San Fernando Valley Chapter, to recognize outstanding football performance, academic achievement and school leadership.

“The National Football Foundation Scholar Athlete award was established in 1959,” said SCCS Football Coach Mark Bates. “Since then it has become one of the most prestigious awards. Candidates must be a senior with a GPA of at least 3.2 on a 4.0 scale, have outstanding football ability as a first team player and demonstrated strong leadership and citizenship.”

Ethan was one of 39 student athletes selected from the high schools in San Fernando, Santa Clarita, Simi and Conejo Valleys.

“The award ceremony was a fun night, and it was an honor to be recognized among other football players across Southern California,” shared Ethan. “This organization recognizes accomplishments in both football and academics, as well as leadership in the school community. To be one of the honorees was very humbling. It was a fantastic way to finish off my high school football experience.”
