Week 1: Dr. Philip D. Wise Memorial Scholar Athlete of the Year
The Law Offices of Fisher Wise, PLLC is proud to sponsor the Dr. Philip D. Wise Memorial Scholar Athlete of the Year. Fisher’s Father, Dr. Philip D. Wise, valued education greatly, and he also went to Samford University on a basketball scholarship. Philip passed away in 2009, and to this day, Fisher’s family looks for ways to remember and celebrate his life any chance they get. So when the opportunity to sponsor the Scholar Athlete of the Week/Year presented itself, it seemed tailor-made for Dr. Philip Douglas Wise.
Each week during Friday Night Rivals, 2 new Scholar Athletes of the Week will be announced from participating schools. All Scholar Athletes of the Week are automatically entered in the running for the Scholar Athlete of the Year. At the end of the football season, each Scholar Athlete will be invited to make a promotional video showcasing their accomplishments and making a case for why they should be chosen by the committee as the Scholar Athlete of the Year. The Scholar Athlete of the Year will receive a $5,000 scholarship.
