Press release below.

==================================

 

Yorktown High School

1100 S. Tiger Drive

Yorktown, IN 47396

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

November 6, 2013

 

YORKTOWN, IN – The Yorktown High School Athletic Department is very honored to announce that senior Tiger student-athlete Chandler Carroll has been awarded the Wendy’s High School Heisman Award for the state of Indiana.

 

Carroll was one of only two winners chosen for the state of Indiana (1 male and 1 female) for this prestigious award. More than 48,000 student-athletes throughout the country applied for this award that was started 20 years ago by the founder of Wendy’s, Dave Thomas. The program was designed to recognize high school seniors who excel in academics, athletics and in their communities. There were 1,020 state finalists, 102 state winners and from those 102 finalists, 12 very deserving individuals will be announced in the coming days as national finalists (six males and six females from six different regions). Those exceptional individuals will be invited to New York City next month to participate in the collegiate Heisman weekend festivities.

 

“I couldn’t be happier for such a well-deserving young man.” said Athletic Director Dan Wolfert. “If you had to look up the term “student-athlete” in the dictionary, I just know there would be a picture of Chandler Carroll in there. It is very rewarding to see all of this fine young man’s hard work on and off the playing field truly paying dividends. Chandler is as talented and yet humble at the same time as I’ve come across, but he deserves every bit of the recognition that he is receiving. He is such an asset to our school and a great role model for the youth of our community. We wish him the best of luck at the national level of this program and we are very proud to call him a Tiger.” added Wolfert.
