2022 SCHOLAR ATHLETE HONOREES

Aaron Gall

Bowie High School Senior Aaron Gall isn't hard to miss on the field for the Bulldogs. As a starting Defensive End, Receiver, and Deep Snapper, Gall gets the job done on the gridiron. The Bulldogs might be the best team in Austin ISD this season thanks in part to Gall's head coach Jeff Ables, who says Aaron is from a long line of Gall family members at Bowie High School. 

Aaron's grades are also near the top of his senior class as he prepares to move to Golden, Colorado next year. This future college football player will take his game to a whole new level as he suits up for the Colorado School of Mines next season.

Adam Schantz

Lake Travis Junior Goalie Adam Schantz made two game saving goals during penalty kicks in the state finals last season as the Cavaliers became the first Class 6A High School boys soccer team from the Greater Austin area to win a state title by defeating Plano 1-0. Schantz only allowed four goals in seven postseason matches including the state semifinals 3-0 win over The Woodlands and the shutout of Plano. 
 

Schantz also has a 3.6 Grade Point Average and excels in honors and AP classes at Lake Travis High School. "He's an incredible young man and I can't wait to have him back a couple of more years," says Lake Travis Boys Soccer Coach David Bammel.
