Jacob Saffold '20, who plays varsity football, has been named Hardee's Player of the Week by WAVY-TV.
Saffold ran for 165 yards and one touchdown in Norfolk Academy's 37-24 win against Fork Union Military Academy on Friday, September 27. He also threw for a 33-yard touchdown on his only passing attempt of the game.
The senior is much more than a talented athlete, though. He has committed to attend and play for Yale University, with plans to become an orthopedic surgeon. During his interview with WAVY, he emphasized academics as much as his football success.
