Miller & Hoobler to receive Scholar Athlete Award

Orrville seniors Chase Hoobler and Sam Miller have been selected as Scholar Athletes by the Northeastern Ohio Chapter of the National Football Foundation. 
They will attend a banquet in Westlake on April 26th along with their families and Coach Doug Davault. 

Also being honored at the banquet will be 2-time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin, current Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel and newly named head coach of Notre Dame, Brian Kelly.

Last year's banquet saw roughly 30 student-athletes honored with the Scholar-Athlete award (including Waynedale's Sean Rutt), so it's certainly a great accomplishment.

All recipients are all-conference or all-league selections, maintain a 3.0 grade point average and are active in the school community.  Both Miller & Hoobler were integral parts of the Red Rider football team that finished as regional runner-ups, and have helped the Red Rider basketball team to a berth in the regional finals.

Orrville alum Tommy Brenner was honored at last year's banquet with a $2000 post-graduate scholarship as a member of the Ashland Eagle football team.
Congrats Sam & Chase on another great accomplishment.  Don't forget to take your autograph pen to the banquet.
