Cadillac’s Pritchard Recognized By National Football Foundation
CADILLAC – Out of 3,500 student athletes from across the country, only 81 were named to the National Football Foundations first-ever Team of Distinction.
Cadillac’s Ethan Pritchard was one of those athletes.
The team was made to honor those who had major roles in their schools, teams, and communities. Each chapter of the NFF was limited to one honoree, making them the top scholar-athlete from all the high schools covered by the chapter.
The members of 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.
Pritchard was the valedictorian, team captain, held a 4.0 GPA, was all-conference, was part of National Honor Society and was a National Merit finalist.
For this year’s Team of Distinction, 35 states were represented with an average GPA of 4.0, 71 of them were team captains, 15 were valedictorians, 59 were National Honor Society members, 32 were selected for all-state honors, and 9 were National Merit honorees.
