WW Washington and Paoli Represented on Colts Academic All-Star List


Three local high school athletes were named to the Indiana Academic All-Star List.

The Indianapolis Colts, the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) and the Indiana Football Coaches Association (IFCA) will recognize 25 outstanding student-athletes with the 2017 Indiana Academic All-Stars Award. 

Wide Receiver Tanner Packwood from West Washington and Defensive Back Deitrich Sears from Paoli High School were recognized. 

Defensive Back Joseph Clate Winters of Madison High School was also named to the list. 

The student-athletes will be honored during an awards presentation prior to the game against Tennessee on Sunday, November 26.  The 2017 honorees will also be recognized during pre-game in front of the Lucas Oil Stadium crowd. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. EST.

2017 marks the 19th year the Colts, the IHSAA and the IFCA have partnered to present this annual award to Indiana’s top football student-athletes.

The IFCA polled high school head coaches around the state, and the coaches tabbed 25 athletes ranked in the top of their respective classes. Of the players selected, there are 21 valedictorians and all 25 players are in the top 2.2% of their graduating classes. 

“Congratulations to the 25 outstanding student-athletes who were selected by our committee to represent their schools this past football season. Special thanks to the Irsay family and the Indianapolis Colts organization for their continuing support of Indiana high school football,” said Toby Jacobs, who is part of the IFCA Colts Academic All-State Committee.
