Two Mount Si High School football players, Jack Weidenbach and Max Bonda, were honored by the National Football Foundation at its 51st Annual Scholar-Athlete Awards Banquet Sunday, Feb. 26, at Century Link Stadium in Seattle.
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, and awards scholarships each year to honor local scholar athletes.
Weidenbach was also selected as one of eight finalists for scholarships. 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,” said Mount Si High School football coach, Charlie Kinnune.
