Sears Recognized at Colts Game

Football has always played a big role in the life of senior Dietrich Sears. In the third grade, Sears began his football career for Paoli and continued through his senior year. Sears most certainly holds true to the phrase “student-athlete, student comes first.” Sears’ grade point average (GPA) is phenomenal and is in the running for the title of 2018 PHS Valedictorian. Sears’ determination to succeed is what led to his recent recognition at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Because of his dedication to his education, Sears was recognized during the Indianapolis Colts game on Sunday, November 26 for being in the top 2% of GPAs for football players in Indiana.
“It was a very fun and cool experience and a good way to feel like the work in the classroom paid off,” said Sears.
Sears will continue to work hard as he gets closer to his anticipated graduation date in May with the class of 2018. After graduating from PHS, Sears looks to further his education at Indiana University in the field of chemistry or astrophysics.
