The National Football Foundation (NFF) Gridiron Club of Dallas announced today the 53 North Texas scholar-athletes who will be honored for their accomplishments on and off the field at the club's second annual awards banquet. The event will be held April 20 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Aledo Bearcats senior defensive end Cy Wilson will be one of the 53 players honored.

"We are proud to announce our second scholar-athlete class for the North Texas region," said Gerald Brence, the president of the NFF Gridiron Club of Dallas and the athletics director for the Plano Independent School District.

"These players symbolize everything right about our game, and they serve as a powerful example to their peers about what it means to bring the same competitive spirit to the classroom that we teach them to use on the field."

The 53 scholar-athletes were selected from a pool of candidates from the entire region. The criteria used to evaluate the honorees included athletic accomplishments, performance in the classroom and commitment to the community.

The selection committee included coaches, teachers, administrators and business leaders from the North Texas area. During the banquet, one individual will be named the club's top scholar-athlete, claiming a $2,500 scholarship to continue his education.
