Football: Kosar Earns Prestigious Honor from NFF

By: Kristy Booher Angelo, Associate Athletic Director
For More Info: 

A total of 82 high school football players out of a possible 3,500 nationwide were selected to the 2019 National Football Foundation (NFF) Team of Distinction and Gilmour Academy's Jack Kosar '19 was one of those honorees. Criteria to make the team include, but are not limited to, academic achievement, athletic accolades and community involvement. Each chapter of the NFF is limited to one honoree, distinguishing that individual as the top scholar-athlete from all the high schools covered by the chapter. The members selected to the team all played their final high school season during the 2018-19 school year. As part of the award, all of the honorees will be part of a permanent digital display at the Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

Kosar, a Brown University commit, was one of the Midwest representatives as selected by the Mike Cleary/Northeast Ohio Chapter. The Gilmour team captain maintained a 4.00 grade point average and was a member of the National Honor Society, in addition to being an AP Scholar with Distinction.
