an Hamburger parti-
cipated in three sports
at Bloomfield Hills
Andover High School.
In the fall, he played foot-
ball. He swam in the winter,
and in the spring he ran with
the track team.
He also managed to gradu-
ate from Andover last month
with a 4.1 grade-point
average on a 4.0 scale by tak-
ing honors classes. So much
for the dumb jock stereotype.
There will be thousands of
football fans in the stands at
Spartan Stadium in East Lan-
sing on Saturday, Aug. 1,
when Hamburger is honored
at halftime of the Michigan
High School All-Star Football
He's one of nine student-
athletes from across the state
who were chosen from among
27 candidates to receive a
$500 college scholarship from
the Michigan High School
Football Coaches Association.
This is a select group of
athletes. Their average GPA
is 3.8 and they averaged sixth
in class rank.
It's Hamburger's second
football-related scholarship.
He also was selected to
receive the $500 Ken Fish
Memorial Scholarshp by An-
dover football coaches. The
Fish Scholarship goes to the
senior on the team who dis-
plays the best combination of
athletic ability, leadership
and academic prowess.
These two scholarships are
meaningful to Hamburger be-
cause football and being a
success in the classroom in
high school go hand-in-hand,
he said.
"Had I not played football,
I wouldn't have gotten as good
grades," insisted Hamburger,
who will celebrate his 18th
birthday and begin his
studies next month (but not
another football season) at
the University of Michigan.

"A lot of kids say they don't
want to play sports because
that would cut into their time
for academics," Hamburger
"Well, the truth is, if you
don't do anything, if you don't
get involved in any extra-
curricular activities, some-
times you don't feel you have
to study at a certain time
because there's always time to
do it later.
"Playing football helped im-
prove my mindset toward
things like hard work. You

from football and apply them

Andover football coach
John Brooks, who nominated
Hamburger for the Coaches
Association scholarship, saw
first-hand how Hamburger
applied himself both on the
football field and in the

work hard and do what it
takes to achieve success,"
Brooks said.
"He had a tremendous fo-

high athletic and academic
goals for himself, and his
ability to concentrate and
work hard on them were the
No. 1 factors for his success.
He's a very determined young

as a football player, we'll miss
him even more for the way he
conducted himself off the
field. He's a perfect example

activities, Hamburger has
spent time working with
mentally and physically-
impaired people at the Jewish
Community Center.
