Morgan High School student, Christian Wiscombe, was selected for the Wendy’s (Restaurant) High School Heisman Award program. Twenty of Utah’s top scholar-athletes were announced as State Finalists for the prestigious award.
Of the 48,000 seniors who applied nationwide, 411 applicants came from Utah. From this group only 20 finalists were selected. These finalists embody the Heisman spirit of hard work and dedication through their outstanding achievements in athletics, academics and community/school leadership.
Just as the collegiate Heisman is known for being the highest award in college football, the Wendy’s High School Heisman, now in its 18th year, is one of the most esteemed awards at the high school level.
The Wendy’s High School Heisman Program was created in 1994 by Wendy’s and the Heisman Memorial Trust. The Wendy’s High School Heisman Award recognizes outstanding high school seniors nationwide who excel in athletics, academics and community leadership. Students can nominate themselves for the award online, in addition to being recommended by principals, teachers, guidance counselors and coaches. The most exceptional students are then selected to advance during extensive judging processes conducted at both state and national levels.
