Bellevue's Haehl honored by National Football Foundation

Tim Haehl, a quarterback and defensive back on Bellevue's 3A state title winning football team, was honored by the National Football Foundation as the Seattle Chapter's Scholar Athlete, receiving a $2,000 scholarship and distinction as for his academic accomplishments, community involvement and football abilities.

Haehl was chosen along with Andrew Wallen of Auburn Riverside to receive the honor as a back in the first ever tie for the honor, with a lineman also chosen. One of Bellevue's leaders on the gridiron, Haehl also played for the Wolverines' basketball team, which claimed a third place finish at the 3A state tournament.

The pool of eight semifinalists was dwindled from 96 nominees.

Newport's Nolan Anderson was also a finalist for the honor.
