Steinbrenner High School senior distance runner Zachary Harrigan was named to the 27th annual Florida Dairy Farmers Academic All-State Team — a recognition program presented by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) that honors 24 graduating student-athletes (12 boys, 12 girls) who excel in both athletics and academics.
As part of the designation, Harrigan will receive a $1,700 scholarship and commemorative medallion.
Harrigan owns a 4.0 GPA and is in the top of his class. He has lettered in cross-country and track all four years of high school, and was a member of Steinbrenner’s 2019 FHSAA cross-country state championship team.
Off the course and out of the classroom, Harrigan earned more than 225 community service hours working with the Humane Society, Idlewild Baptist Church and Feeding Tampa Bay. He plans on studying pre-medicine at Auburn University (Auburn, Alabama) this fall.
To be eligible for Academic All-State, students must be a graduating senior with a minimum 3.5 unweighted GPA, and must have earned a minimum of two varsity letters in at least two different sports during their junior and senior year.
