“Josh is an exceptional student and truly embodies the definition of student athlete,” said CLHS Principal Kristy Castilleja. “He is a student leader on campus and contributes to several organizations such as ‘because I said I would’ and the Superintendent’s Student Advisory. He leads by example and works hard to accomplish the goals he sets out for himself which include in the classroom and on the field.”
Sczech said he hopes to play soccer professionally one day and coach the sport he loves.
“I am honored to have been selected for this award,” he said. “It means a lot to me to have been recommended by my coaches and school administrators. I couldn’t have gotten to the point of receiving this award without their support and dedication to my development.”
A member of CLHS Hawks soccer team, Szech was named district and area MVP as a sophomore and also was selected to the all-state team.
He also volunteers as a coach at Bulverde Youth Soccer Association and is a licensed youth referee with the United States Soccer Federation.
