(Columbus) The Columbus High School football team had an excellent year. The Cardinals won their first state championship since being runners-up in 1995 and their head coach Andy Selgrad was named the Green Bay Packers High School Coach of the Year. Now one of their players is up for a national award.
Schools Superintendent Jacob Flood says, “one of our players is up for a national MVP…Colton Brunell is up for that right now.
During a recent Community Comment, Flood said the accomplishments by the athletes have sent a message to the student body.
“I think it does have a ripple down effect,” he says. “They’re seeing the outcome that can happen from hard work.”
The winner of the National MVP award will be announced at a later date.
