When Ellison head football coach Trent Gregory first explained the Ellison Plus One program to Eagle offensive lineman Michael Smith, for the first time in his high school career, Smith was genuinely excited to be recognized for his achievements on the field and in the classroom.

“I was excited because I was like this is the first time this ever happened besides in a banquet where you get a certificate saying this kid got Academic All District,” Smith said. “We actually get rewarded to get out of class, have fun, chill with those who had the same opportunities that we did.”
