Sean Foley Receives Scholar-Athlete Award

Senior lineman Sean Foley received a NFF Scholar-Athlete Award from the Philadelphia Chapter of the National Football Foundation. He was one of 35 honorees from the five-county area receiving an award, recognized as one of the most prestigious and competitive high school academic honors in the country.

The NFF each year honors the "best and brightest" college and high school players. The names of the award recipients are displayed at a kiosk at the College Football Hall of Fame, in Atlanta, and they will be forever touted for their accomplishments.

According to the NFF's website, criteria for the award include but are not limited to academic achievement, athletic accomplishments and community leadership. The chapters subsequently recognize approximately 3,500 of the best scholar-athletes at their local awards banquets, distributing more than $1 million in scholarships. The Philadelphia chapter, established in 1990, is headed by Villanova coach Andy Talley.

Sean is shown above with John Estok, strength and conditioning coach, and Tom Coyle, head football coach.
