Congratulations to quarterback Drew Friedman ’21, winner of the 59th annual George Wah Scholar-Leader-Athlete Award. The award honors football players from a local youth league, as well as high schools and colleges, who have made an impact on the area in and out of football. The award is sponsored by the Delaware Valley Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame.
Harry Flaherty, Lawrenceville’s varsity football coach and history teacher, had the following to say about Friedman in his nomination letter:
Drew’s commitment to academic excellence has been abundantly clear during his time at Lawrenceville.’ He has been a diligent student who has almost never failed to submit his assignments in a timely manner. Furthermore, he has performed well in a competitive academic environment, maintaining almost all A-range grades in one of the more challenging curricula in the country. Having had the opportunity to teach Drew in the classroom, I experienced a student who was not only diligent, but one who maintained a consistent interest in improving – meeting with me to review his writing and slowly, steadily making adjustments to bring his writing up to a college level.”
Friedman also a varsity lacrosse player for Big Red and will play the sport next year for Yale.
