Mark Anderson Named National High School Scholar-Athlete
Sept. 26, 2001
Morristown, N.J. - The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame announced that Stanford freshman Mark Anderson is one of the four recipients of the National High School Scholar-Athlete Award. One of the most competitive high school football honors in the country, the award recognizes four student-athletes who combine the right mix of academics, athletics and citizenship during their high school careers to truly exemplify the term scholar-athlete.
Anderson was one of more than 3,000 high school scholar-athletes honored by the National Football Foundation, and was chosen among those to be the Western Region recipient. A defensive end from Lewistown, Montana, Anderson earned Academic All-State honors for three consecutive years. He was named the Gatorade Montana Player of the Year, Conference Defensive MVP and received All-State and All-Conference honors as both a defensive end and tight end. Anderson was a member of the National Honor Society, Key Club and his high school's Science Bowl team that competed in the national finals in Washington D.C.
Ceremonies to honor the scholar-athletes will take place in New York City at the National Football Foundation's Annual Awards Luncheon in December.
