Congratulations, Scott Hosch, for making a commitment to play football at Harvard this coming year! After playing quarterback your junior year, as a successful backup to CJ, you willingly and capably took control of the North Gwinnett High School Varsity football team and quarterbacked the Bulldogs to an undefeated regular season. Thank you for all that you have done for North Gwinnett High School, on the football field, in the classroom and in the community! Harvard is fortunate to have you commit to their university. Good luck, Scott! Go Bulldogs!

Scholarship to Harvard, the flagship school of the Ivy League...[HECK] YEAH!!!! That rocks, big time!

Obviously not only was Hosch lightin' it up on the field, but he was also tearin' it up in the classroom as well as you've got to be really smart and on top of things academically even to earn an athletic scholarship to Harvard or any Ivy League school, but ESPECIALLY Harvard.

Congratulations to Scotty Hosch on earning a full-ride scholarship to Harvard. Public schools/"government schools" have their problems and their detractors, but Hosch obviously more than took full advantage of the very good things that "government schools" have to offer by working his backside off and making the absolute most of the opportunities afforded to him.

Public school supporters and defenders can advocate throwing every single last dollar in the world to "help" public schools and "government school" detractors can talk about how bad the schools and the teachers and administrators are all they want.

But at the end of the day, no matter how bad or how good a public school may be, it all comes down to how bad each individual student wants to learn and succeed and obviously, Scotty Hosch is an example of a student that really wanted to learn, no matter what he was or was not given.

It is the desire of each individual student to learn that determines how good or bad a school will be, it's not the teachers, it's not the testing. it's not how money gets thrown at a particular school by the government, it's how much each student desires and wants to take advantage of the opportunities afforded them that makes a school and their individual futures.
