Burger King Student Athlete of the Week: Drew Bond

By  | 

AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- Riverheads High School senior Drew Bond stars on the three-time defending champion football team and the school's basketball team - but he also plans on making an impact on the world.

"That's the big thing about Drew, you know he's gonna work hard, you know he's gonna give you what he's got," Riverheads head football coach Robert Casto said. "He lays it all out on the line, no matter whether he's in the classroom or out on the field. He made plays and he could have gone out of bounds at any time and he didn't do it. That was a lot of his personality and his character."

"His dedication and how much he just cares about the school, the kids, the people, not just athletics, not just academics," Bond's teacher Heather Durham said. "He truly does represent what it means to be a gladiator."

Bond is also helping grow the sport of lacrosse in the Valley.

For college, he is currently considering Penn State, Virginia Tech and Clemson to study engineering.
