Local Athlete Makes Top 20 for Statewide Award

EL PASO-GRIDLEY - An EPG senior is in the top 20 for the High School Heisman.

A local athlete is being honored as one of the top student athletes in the state.

Rebekah Ehresman is one of the top 20 finalists in the state for Wendy’s High School Heisman Award.

She’s a senior at El Paso-Gridley High School, where she plays basketball and volleyball.

Candidates for the Heisman Award are seniors who do well in academics and athletics, as well as show leadership in their communities.

Ehresman says she didn’t expect to make it this far in the competition.

“I was just shocked. I didn’t expect that, just to be placed with the top contenders for it in Illinois. It was a really great honor,” says Ehresman.

She’ll find out if she’s the statewide winner on Monday.
