Witschen earns another honor

Monticello High School senior Michael Witschen, already a winner of the eXcel award earlier this year, is set to be recognized once more for his work as a student-athlete.
Witschen, a football standout, has been invited to the 2013 “Honoring Legends, Inspiring Leaders” Awards Dinner, sponsored by the Minnesota Vikings.
The Minnesota Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame will honor outstanding individuals from the world of professional and amateur football in Minnesota at the Chapter’s annual awards dinner on Sunday, April 28.
Witschen is being recognized for his contributions on the field, where he stood out as a linebacker and receiver, and for his work in the classroom, where he has always been on the “A” honor roll.
According to a press release, seven other  high school seniors from across the state of Minnesota will receive recognition as outstanding high school scholar-athletes. These scholar-athletes, as nominated by their football coaches, were evaluated on their academic achievement, football ability and performance, leadership, attitude, and service to their community.
