After the lost season of 2020 due to The Pandemic, Diamond Prospects is excited to, once again, be able to celebrate the All-Academic Team and award one student-athlete as the Tripp Rabon Scholar Athlete of the Year. At DP we spend much of our time chasing physical tools, but as we do each year, we want to honor these young men that take care of business in the classroom too.Thank you to each high school coach and guidance counselor that nominated players with a premium GPA, SAT/ACT and class rank from their team/school.
In 2016 the DP Scholar Athlete of the year award was renamed named the Tripp Rabon Scholar Athlete Award in honor of Tripp Rabon (pictured) of Summerville. Tripp left us far too soon due to a car accident in December of 2015. He was an amazing young man who left a mark on everyone he came across both on the field and off. His success in the classroom was also well-documented and led DP to name the award after him.
