The Westchester Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame will announce its 2012 Scholar-Athlete Teams at Thursday night’s 40th annual awards banquet at Westchester Country Club. That will include the “Golden Dozen,” an honor bestowed upon the county’s top senior scholar-athletes.
Harrison was the only school with two players — seniors Charlie Credendino and Robert Waldman — named Golden Dozen. Including Harrison, players were selected from nine Section 1 schools in Westchester.
Harvard-bound Raishaun McGhee of Rye Country Day and Mario Biaggi of Iona Prep were also selected. Biaggi has drawn interest from Columbia, Brown, Johns Hopkins and MIT.
The Westchester Chapter will also award five scholarships to some of its top scholar-athletes, including the Christopher Mello Award. The Mello Award is named for a former Rye High School student and 1993 Golden Dozen recipient who was killed in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
Here’s a look at this year’s Golden Dozen:
