Penn State true freshman quarterback Drew Allar is one of 82 high school athletes named to the National Football Foundation’s team of distinction.

Allar and the other 81 have been recognized “for their combined performance in the classroom, on the football field and in the community.”

The 82 were chosen out of 3,500 scholar athletes, according to the National Football Foundation’s website. Every honoree played their final football season during the 2021-22 school year.

Allar, a graduate of Medina High School, in Ohio, was one of the Midwest Region’s honorees. He graduated with a 3.5 GPA and made it to Medina’s honor role after all of his semesters. Allar graduated high school early and enrolled at Penn State this past winter.

Penn State fans know what Allar can do on the football field, and many are counting on him to be the school’s next great quarterback. He committed to Penn State in March of 2021, and by the time he finished his high school career, he was a five-star recruit and the No. 1 quarterback in the country according to 247Sports composite rankings.

Allar finished his senior season with 4,433 yards and 48 touchdowns passing, completing 60% of his passes. He also added 415 rushing yards and nine touchdowns, leading Medina to a 13-1 record and a regional championship game appearance.
