WAUSAU (WAOW)-  It's safe to say that the Hall of Fame Coach would have been pleased to lead all of this year's Win Brockmeyer Memorial Scholarship candidates onto the gridiron.

Wausau West captain Matiah Fischer earned a spot on the all-state team as a defensive back, and the all-conference team at wide receiver.

He also runs track, volunteers in the community, and is a member of the National Honor Society.

"Knowing the people who have wonit in the past and the other 2 great athletes I was here with today, I'm just honored," said Fischer.

Newman Catholic captain Adam Heis played 5 position in 3 years...and earned all-conference honors at 2 of those this season, as the Cardinals won their first two playoff games in school history.

"It was probably the greatest feeling in my life," said Heis. "Just winning 25-0 in the first game and then blowing Rio out at home, which we never thought we were going to get to play on that field again."

Heis also competes in track, while holding down 2 jobs.

Wausau East captain Nate Troyer is a 3-year starter at defensive back and running back. He volunteers his time to youth programs and charities, and also stars for the Lumberjack basketball team.

"Humbled to be here," said Troyer. "I couldn't have done it without my teammates. The coaches are very supporting. Thanks to my parents for the support throughout my career."

Only one can be named the Outstanding Senior High School Football Player of the Greater Wausau Area for 2010.

And on behalf of the Selection Committee and Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin.

I was proud to present the 15th annual award to Ty Fischer.

This year's winner will put his 2-thousand dollar scholarship toward a continued education and football career at either Michigan Tech or Minnesota-Duluth. But it's what the award stands for that makes him most proud to hold that plaque.

"The values that go along with it are a lot of the values that Coach Grundy teaches us everyday in football," said Fischer.

Besides being a star on the field, Brockmeyer scholarship winners must be positive role models who display the characteristics of aggressiveness, courage, physical development, and sportsmanship.

"It's fun to see past winners, what they're doing in their lives now," said innaugural Brockmeyer Scholarship winner Tim Freiberg who now serves as an assistant coach at West. "Most of them, if not all of them, have been very successful. There's definitely a foundation there that was with high school athletics and high school football in particular."

Meanwhile, Heis and Troyer don't walk away empty handed. They each receive a 500 dollar scholarship.
