From the San Mateo County Times:
SCHOLAR-ATHLETES: Carlmont's Dominic Ferrario and El Camino's Ryan Smith are the San Mateo County recipients of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame scholarships.
Ferrario was a tight end and linebacker for Carlmont and carries a 3.8 grade-point average. He plans on majoring in music at the University of Miami.
"He was a guy who wouldn't come off the field for us," Carlmont coach Dylan Shelley said. "And the thing about Dom, he's just such an outstanding person and leader and so dependable."
Smith played tight end and outside linebacker for El Camino. He has a 3.5 GPA and plans on studying computer engineering at San Jose State.
"He was like having a coach on the field," El Camino coach Eric Jacobson said. "Just a joy to coach."
