Aneesh Agrawal named SSZ 2016 Football Scholar Athlete

Middletown South’s Aneesh Agrawal delivered great highlights as the Eagles starting quarterback in his senior year, but it paled in comparison to his academic achievements.  From a perfect score on the ACT to winning a national competition for breakthrough technology in recognition software, the future is bright for the High Tech High School student.  Watch our profile of the 2016 SSZ Football Scholar Athlete:
