At this year's Student Athlete of the Year Banquet at Todaro's Party Center, our Male and Female scholarship winners were seniors Samantha Wolf of Ellet High School and Clayton Langdon of Revere High School.
Both Samantha and Clatyon were both humbled and grateful to recieve the $1,000 scholarships to their respective schools.
"It's amazing I don't know what to say," Wolf said. Adds Clayton, "It means a lot to me, I don't know what I did to deserve it, thank you," he said.

Clayton competed in track and field for Revere as well as football. Clayton plans on studying pre-med and play football at the University of Dayton.
