Monroe’s Dylan Judson had a bit of a disappointing season debut last Friday against Jackson, catching just two passes for five yards.

But the senior tight end got some very good news on Thursday. Judson was named the CenturyLink High School Athlete of the Week and will be honored on the field on Sept. 16 against Dallas.

SEATTLE and RENTON, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks, CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) and Q13 FOX (KCPQ) today announced Dylan Judson of Monroe High School as the week one CenturyLink High School Athlete of the Week. Dylan will be recognized on the field at CenturyLink Field during the September 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Dylan, a senior at Monroe, was selected Athlete of the Week based on his dedication to academics, community involvement, leadership and athletic performance. Dylan holds a 3.7 GPA and is enrolled in multiple honors courses, including Western Literature, Pre-Calculus, American Literature, and Algebra 2. He volunteers at “Painting a Better Tomorrow,” helping paint houses for low-income families, and also helps coach a baseball team which gives disabled children the opportunity to learn and play the game of baseball. As far as athletic performance, Dylan was selected as a 2011 4A WESCO North first-team all-conference tight end last year, racking up 10 catches, 196 yards and four touchdowns, in addition to 56 tackles, six sacks, two fumble recoveries and a safety on defense.

As high school athlete of the week, the student-athlete will also be recognized at their school in front of their family, peers and teachers. They will also receive a $1,000 grant from CenturyLink and the Seahawks for their school’s ASB fund, in addition to media recognition, tickets and sideline passes to a Seahawks game, and a customized 2012 Nike Seahawks jersey.
