The National Football Foundation promotes amateur football at all levels and celebrates top student athletes in many communities across the country. The Seattle/King County chapter of the Foundation represents 64 high school programs throughout King and Kitsap Counties in Washington State, and awards scholarships each year to honor local scholar athletes.
Max Bonda and Jack Weidenbach, both seniors, were honored guests among many top high school athletes in the region. Weidenbach was also selected as one of eight finalists for scholarships, with a seat at the head table. Two $2000 scholarships were awarded to players from Skyline and Kings high schools, and Jack was among the six remaining finalists who each earned $500 awards.
“It was a great celebration of academics, service and athletics,” added Coach Kinnune.
