Will Andrews, who plays tennis for Henry Clay High School, became the 33rd recipient of the Tommy Bell Award on Thursday.
Andrews became the fifth straight Blue Devil to take the honor and the second straight tennis player to do so. He was Henry Clay's 13th honoree.
The Tommy Bell Award is presented each year to a student who excels inside and outside athletics. It is named after the late Tommy Bell, a respected Lexington lawyer who is the only person to have ever officiated an NCAA men’s basketball championship game and a Super Bowl.
Andrews has been recognized as a National Merit Scholar, a National AP Scholar, and an AP Scholar with Distinction. He played club volleyball in Louisville his last two years of high school and last month signed a scholarship to play that sport for New Jersey Institute of Technology, a Division I program.
This week Andrews is competing in the KHSAA State Tennis Championships as part of a doubles team with Brett Folsom. The pair entered the tournament, which began Thursday, as the fourth seed.
