Jesuit High School’s Clark Bulleit ’15 and Brendon Wamsley ’15 were recognized by the Tampa Chapter of the National Football Foundation as Scholar-Athletes at a ceremony Thursday night (Feb. 12) at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Tampa.
Bulleit also took home the night’s top prize: He was chosen the NFF Tampa Chapter’s top Scholar-Athlete.
Bulleit earned a $1,500 scholarship award and the opportunity to earn the NFF’s National Scholar-Athlete Award, as the Tampa Chapter nominee to the Southeast Region.
Wamsley, who plays defensive end, anchored a defense that helped the Tigers advance to the Region Final this fall. He is planning to attend a military academy.
Bulleit, who signed to play football at Duke University last week, was named first-team All-County by the Tampa Tribune as an offensive lineman and is Jesuit’s student body president.
A total of 23 Hillsborough County football players were honored Thursday by the NFF for excellence in academics and football. Click here to learn more about the National Football Foundation.
