Orem High senior Austin Kirkby was awarded the “Scholar-Leader-Athlete” award from the National Football Foundation & College Hall Of Fame at a banquet held Tuesday night at UVU. Austin was one of only 12 athletes in the entire state to receive this prestigious award. The criteria to qualify for the award included 40% football performance, 40% academic achievement, and 20% extra curricular activity (or service in the community).
Anyone who is lucky enough to know Austin personally, knows that this award is well deserved. He is a leader among his peers and a genuinely kind and respectful person. Congratulations Austin! We are so proud that you are an OHS Tiger.
