Saratoga's Stiansen honored by National Football Foundation

Stiansen excelled both as a student and an athlete at Saratoga Springs High School

Saratoga Springs senior Nick Stiansen was recently honored as much for his success in the classroom as on the field when he was named a National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame scholar athlete.
Playing as a defensive lineman this fall, Stiansen recorded 101 tackles (more than 11 per game), including 59 solo and seven for a loss. He also caused two fumbles, recovered two others, and was credited with two sacks. As the starting tight end on offense, where he was used primarily as a blocker, the senior captain caught two passes for touchdowns in the Blue Streaks' run to the Section II Class AA semifinals.
Stiansen also played varsity basketball for Saratoga Springs.
