Vote: Juan Diego for the 2011 Rudy Award

Juan Diego, JSerra Senior and Varsity Offensive Lineman

Juan Diego (JD) Temple is a senior at JSerra. He plays offensive and defensive line for the varsity football team as well as varsity volleyball.  I had the honor of teaching and coaching JD for three yearsof his high school career before becoming Associate Director of Notre Dame’s Play Like a Champion Today(R) Program in January.

JD is a wonderful young man of Catholic faith and integrity… not to mention he lost his father suddenly to colon cancer in the summer of 2010. Through this trying time JD continued to be an honorable student, athlete and member of the school community. JD still maintains a 3.0 GPA and is revered by students, faculty and staff as one of the greatest young men on campus. He and his mom Teresa (Momma T) have become a source of inspiration for the entire school community and to me personally.

It is without reservation and most sincere vehemence that I nominate Juan Diego (JD) Temple for the 2011-2012 Rudy Award.
