A student who excels in the classroom, as well as the football field, is this year's Friday Night Rivals Scholar Athlete of the Year!
Thompson Rudolph attends Spartanburg High School and has a 4.47 grade point average.
In addition to lettering on the football team, Rudolph is an Eagle Scout and a mentor at an elementary school.
He said getting to this point in his education has been a team effort.
"We've got a great staff of teachers and administrators at Spartanburg High School, and my teachers have helped me along the way," Rudolph said. "Principal Stevens and Dr. Booker have really played a tremendous role in my success -- my coaches, especially."
Dave Edwards Toyota presented Rudolph with a $2,000 scholarship to the college of his choice. He said he has his eye on Clemson University.
