SHS senior Greg Herd is headed to Eastern Washington University this coming fall.
The school’s Associated Student Body President, who’s also an outstanding football/basketball player for the Sentinels, has agreed to attend EWU and to play for the Eagles, where the school awarded him a four-year scholarship.
This young man, with a 3.6 GPA, who was voted as Team Captain, Nisqually-Olympic League MVP, by the Tacoma News Tribune, also was named 1st team all-area, Daily Olympian New 1st Team All-area and 2A All-state Game nominee in 2008.
As a Freshman, Herd earned the All-League Honorable Mention as a Defensive Back , and also was named as All League 1st Team DB in 2006, 07 and 08. He will be one of 33 entering freshman football players at EWU.
Finding a balance between sports and school activities, he’s also volunteered in many ways, including raising funds for the Coaches vs Cancer, and assisting with community food and clothing drives.
“Not only an outstanding athlete,” said SHS Principal Jan McCrimmon, “Greg is also a leader, a volunteer and an active member of our community.”
