Becker will move on for consideration in the next stage of the program where he could be named a State Finalist.  He was selected as a 2015 School Winner based on the following accomplishments:

  • Top 25 percent academic performance
  • State Bronze Medalist in discus
  • Future Farmers of America (FFA) member
  • Committed to Southern Methodist University (SMU) to play football

The next announcement, November 2nd, will include the names of the State Finalists selected from every State and the District of Columbia.  Following the State Finalists’ announcement, the names of the two State Winners, one male and one female, will be revealed before the field is narrowed down to 10 National Finalists. The 10 National Finalists, five males and five females, and their families will receive an all-expense paid trip to New York City to attend the Wendy’s High School Heisman Award Ceremony and the announcement of the two National Winners.
