STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK, JOHN EVIN

December 17, 2018


Congratulations to John Evin, our Student-Athlete of the Week! John is a junior at Ridgewood High School in West Lafayette, Ohio, and is a member of the football and track teams. He has been serving as a volunteer with The 2nd & 7 Foundation for two years. John shares what he enjoys most about his role, "seeing the appreciation on the kids' faces as they get the book that we are reading to them makes my day. They get huge smiles on their faces when they realize that the 'big kids' can relate to them. I am just thankful to The 2nd & 7 Foundation for giving me this opportunity to pay it forward."

We are grateful for John's commitment to making a difference in his community!
