Congratulations to Lakeville South High School graduate, George Brekke, who has been named a Scholar Athlete by the Minnesota Chapter of the National Football Foundation. This annual award honors Minnesota high school football players for their outstanding athletic, academic and community service accomplishments. Brekke and eight other scholar-athletes will be recognized during a television broadcast in July.
Brekke showed versatility on the Cougars football team, shifting from positions including safety, tight end and long snapper as needed. The team captain was a two-time All-District selection and received second team All-Metro recognition from KARE 11. Brekke accumulated a 4.24 GPA and recently earned Academic All-State honors.
“George’s selflessness and team-first approach to the game speaks volumes of his character and represent what Minnesota high school football is all about,” said Lakeville South head football coach Benjamin Burk. “He’s a model student in the community of our school, elevating those around him. He’s a school building leader and a friend to students from all backgrounds.”
Brekke will be recognized in a televised show hosted by Minnesota Football Honors. The broadcast is set to air in July. Keep checking the Minnesota Football Honors website for an official broadcast date.
