Wheeling Park Student Named Wendy’s HEISMAN Finalist

Wheeling Park’s Sellers Named Wendy’s High School HEISMAN

Wheeling Park High School senior William Sellers is being recognized for his tremendous achievements as a student athlete.

Sellers has been recognized as a Wendy’s High School Heisman West Virginia finalist. The recognition is awarded to student athletes who have displayed excellence and integrity both on and off the field. Sellers is a standout on the Wheeling Park cross country, track and swimming teams.

Wheeling Park High School Assistant Principal Dick Ochsenbein congratulated Sellers Tuesday on his achievement. He said the recognition could not have gone to a more deserving Wheeling Park Patriot.

“William is not only a scholar athlete,” Ochsenbein said. “He’s also involved in the jazz band, marching band, science club and the math club. He is in the top 10 of his class, and it is amazing that he is able to excel in so many things.”

The Wendy’s High School Heisman state finalists will go on to compete for the title of state winner, where, for the first time ever, one male and one female student from each state will also receive a Wendy’s High School Heisman Scholarship. Each state finalist will receive a bronze medal, a Wendy’s High School Heisman State Finalist patch and a $25 Wendy’s gift card. School winners will receive a certificate and Wendy’s High School Heisman patch.

Eligibility to be named a Wendy’s High School Heisman winner begins with maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or better. Applicants also need to be proven leaders and role models within their school and community. Applicants must perform in at least one of the 43 school-sponsored sports recognized by the International Olympic Committee in the Summer and Winter Olympic Games or the National Federation of State High School Associations.
