Congratulations to Owen Young - Pearson's BTEC Sports Student of the Year Award
We are ever so proud to be able to congratulate one of our BTEC Level 3 Sport student's, Owen Young for winning the Pearson's Bronze Certificate for Sports Student of the Year in the BTEC Awards 2019.
Owen is currently studying BTEC Sport at Haringey Sixth Form College and he represents two basketball teams - H6 Basketball Academy (Haringey Sixth Form Academy's basketball team) and Haringey Hawks (A Haringey borough basketball team). He was nominated by Daniel Searle (Assistant Director for Sport, Business and ICT at Haringey Sixth Form College).
In Owen's nomination statement, he mentioned "I live in Southend, and I have to get up every morning at 5am to make morning training, which starts at 7am, then my lessons start at 9am. We also train after college until 6.30pm. This commitment requires a lot of dedication, but my passion for playing and studying sport makes me determined to succeed.
The hard work is paying off as I am currently predicted a D*D*D* for my course, and both my College and amateur basketball teams are national champions."

Owen was the top scorer in the ABL national final, managing to get 75% success ratio with 3-point shots.
In conjunction to maintaining high levels of academic attainment, travelling over 2 hours to and from college daily and continuously displaying great levels of sportsmanship and fitness moral, it is safe to say that Owen has managed to exhibit all the right character attributes to be a model student and an inspiration to many.
Of course, in-house, Owen's hard work and dedication have not gone unnoticed as Russ Lawrance, Principal & CEO of Haringey Sixth Form College stated "We're very proud of the dedication, hard work and resilience shown by Owen. He is a great example of a model student. We will continue to support and encourage all of our students to always aim for excellence in everything they do."
