Troy Skinner was awarded as Bishop Diego’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon held at Harry’s Plaza Cafe.
Award sponsor Bob Huhn, of Human Performance Center, presented Skinner with the award after Bishop Diego football coach and teacher Tom Crawford said a few words about Troy.
“There is the phrase ‘proverbial coach on the field’ and that certainly applies to Troy.,” Crawford said.
“Troy is the embodiment of what we would like to get out of our athletes.”
Parents Aaron and Denise were also present.
The senior three-sport athlete carries a 4.33 GPA and is an AP Scholar with distinction. Skinner is part of the STEM team at Bishop that focuses on learning skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
