Spectrum News Austin announced that Oliver Yu ‘20 was the first recipient of their Scholar Athlete Program scholarship. Yu was recognized for his achievements on the gridiron and in the classroom, and will be awarded $1,000 for use towards college expenses. 

“Coach Wood approached me mid-September and asked me if it was okay if he nominated me for this, and he told me about this and I was like ‘Sure, why not,’” Yu said. “I know that my grades are pretty good and my season is going well so I thought I’d have a good shot of getting it. [The whole process] was pretty easy and I’m glad I was able to get the money.”

Yu leads the varsity football team in touchdown receptions this season, and will play his last regular season game against Cedar Ridge on Friday, Nov. 8.
