Seneca Valley Honors 11 Student Athletes Earning College Scholarships

May 15, 2015

 

Seneca Valley High School honored 11 senior student athletes from six sports that have earned scholarships to play in colleges or universities.

   “This year we have 11 athletes who have worked hard to earn these honors,” said Seneca Valley Athletic Director Jesse Irvin. “I hope they don’t ever take for granted the opportunity they have been given. They have made us all proud.”

   The athletes, four football players, three baseball players, two boys lacrosse players and two girls track team members were each honored by their coaches for the achievements.

    Coach Christopher Colbert honored two members of the Seneca Valley Girls Track Team, Tyatianna Johnson, who will attend the United States Military Academy at West Point in the fall, and Mariah McLane, who will attend Mount Saint Mary’s University.

   “Gaining acceptance and appointed to West Point is the greatest accomplishment a Seneca Valley athlete has achieved since I have been here, “ said Track and Field Head Coach Christopher Colbert of Tyatianna Johnson, “and I have been here 19 years.”

   Football Head Coach Fred Kim honored four of his players, offensive lineman Michael Elbert who will be attending Stevenson University; offensive lineman James Puhnaty who will be attending Frostburg State University; linebacker Devon Ashby, who will be playing at Bowie State University; and Mujahid Robinson who will be attending Westminster College.

   Boys lacrosse Head Coach Jeremy Benson honored midfielder Henry Quaye, who will be attending the University of the Cumberlands; and defender Keith Pruitt, who will be attending St. Vincent College.

   Seneca Valley Baseball Head Coach Mike Gibson honored two brothers Orlando and Josh  Roberson who will both be attending Lincoln University; as well as Justin Carroll who will be attending Juniata College in the fall.

   “One of the things that I wanted to do when I took over the Athletic Department was to restore the pride our student-athletics,” said Irvin. “I want our students and coaches to smile when our athletes win, to cry when our athletes lose, feel pain when our athletes are hurting, and to be joyful when they succeed. The coaches here are certainly exemplifying that attitude towards our athletes.”
