2021 High School Scholar Athletes Announced
Triton Regional High School quarterback Kyle Odoy leads a list of thirteen high school senior football players representing 11 area schools that have been named to the 2021 Scholar Athlete Class of the Jack Grinold/Eastern Massachusetts Chapter of the National Football Foundation.
The honorees are judged on academics, community service, extra curricular activities and football ability.
"These 13 young men have persevered through an unimaginable year and a half," said Chapter Executive Director Jim Seavey. "With the COVID pandemic there was no guarantee they would even have a senior season, yet they remained steadfast in their resolve to play football and still managed to contribute to their schools and communities in positive ways. They have each brought great distinction to their schools, families and communities.”
Odoy is a three sport captain (basketball and baseball) who was named Triton Regional's male athlete of the year. He tallied 586 yards on 62 of 107 passing (57.9 percent) and four touchdown passes while also tallying 393 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns on a team-high 94 carries in five games.
Academically, Odoy is among the best students at Triton Regional High School. He boasts a 4.64 GPA and ranks fourth in his class, and has served as a class officer, a member of Triton’s student council and in a variety of other leadership positions throughout high school. He will attend the United States Naval Academy.
The Grinold Chapter has nominated Oday to the National Football Foundation Team of Distinction.
The Scholar Athletes will be honored in a virtual ceremony at a date to be announced.
