USA South Presents Male Don Scalf Award
(FERRUM, VA) - The USA South Athletic Conference recently presented its Male Don Scalf Award to former Ferrum College baseball student-athlete Paul Jaglowski at the Panthers' football game versus N.C. Wesleyan on Saturday, October 13. USA South Commissioner Rita Wiggs was on hand to present the award.
The Scalf award is named in honor of Don Scalf, who was a founding father of the DIAC in 1963 and served as its Secretary-Treasurer for 25 years. He taught for 36 years and coached for 18 at N.C. Wesleyan College. Scalf also served as Athletic Director at N.C. Wesleyan for six years.
Jaglowski's collegiate career came to a close last spring on the baseball diamond. He succeeded greatly both on and off the field. In the classroom, the senior compiled a 3.93 grade point average. He received his fourth consecutive USA South All-Academic Team accolade last season and become just the second-ever Panther to be named a First Team Academic All-American. Jaglowski was the winner of 2012 Ferrum's Douglas W. Foard Award which is given to the institution's top International Studies student. He appeared on Ferrum's Dean's List eight times and earned Academic All-State accolades three times.
"I am honored to be the recipient of this year's Don Scalf Award and am proud to be a representative of the USA South Athletic Conference," shared Jaglowski. "It is very rewarding to know that my efforts in the classroom and on the ball field have not gone unnoticed. I would like to thank those who have supported me over the years, nominated me for this award, and made all of the opportunities that I have had at Ferrum College possible."
Athletically, Jaglowski was a three-time All-Conference performer and the 2012 Player of the Year. He also earned All-Region accolades in 2012 in addition to Ferrum President's Cup which is awarded annually to the College's top graduating student-athlete.
Off campus, Jaglowski taught Economics and English to upper-level students in Haiti for several years and acted as a liaison between potential donors in the United States and an orphanage in Haiti.
