Sophomore Ben Gard, Player of the Game: Week 5

Ben Gard is the son of Steven Gard, and he is a sophomore at ADM High School. This is his first year playing varsity football, and he has been playing the sport since the fifth grade. When asked why he loves the game of football he remarked, “It’s challenging but fun!” He also loves watching professional and college-level football on T.V.
Gard feels honored to be recognized, and he feels a great deal of accomplishment to be given this title. He is very proud of the team’s efforts against Earlam, and when asked why he felt he was chosen to be the Player of the Game he said, “I stood out to the coaches, played hard, and gave it my all.” Gard is a prime example of a young player making a big impact on the varsity level.

In honor of his achievements Fuller Standard Service is donating $50 to the ADM scholarship foundation.
