Zoltan Hartmus, a senior at Upper Arlington High School, is our student-athlete of the week. Zoltan plays football, lacrosse, and ice hockey. Not only is he an excellent three-sport athlete, but he has a passion for paying it forward and is extremely involved in his community. For example, Zoltan is involved in the Cloud Nine Cure, which is a club created to benefit the hematology/oncology clinic at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. In addition, he is a leader when it comes to The 2nd & 7 Foundation by serving as the coordinator of the student-athlete readers who visit the children in the Upper Arlington elementary schools. 

Zoltan shares, “My favorite part of The 2nd & 7 Foundation is talking with the kids after the reading, they always ask such funny questions. I remember how much I looked up to high school kids when I was that young so it’s just pretty cool to go in and see them.”
