Dover High School graduate Nick Boyle ’14 was awarded the $1,000 Monsignor Corr Scholarship sponsored by the Morris County Chapter of the National Football Foundation (NFF). Bill Haemmerle, Membership Officer of the NFF, presented the award at the Dover High School Senior Awards Night on Wednesday, June 18, 2014.
The NFF’s mission is to promote amateur football for the development of leadership, sportsmanship, athletic and academic excellence and citizenship. Award recipients are selected based on outstanding academic achievement, athletic ability, and community involvement.
The award is named in memory of Monsignor Corr, pastor at Christ the King Church in Harding Township, NJ from 1966 until his retirement in 1996. Monsignor Corr was a founding board member of the Morris County Chapter of the National Football Foundation.
“Nick is a great young man, who works hard on and off the field,” said Dover High School Athletic Director Sean Bullock. “He is a remarkable student, football player, and leader.”
Boyle will attend Rowan University in the fall and will play football for the Profs.
