Connor Pohl receives “That’s My Boy” award
The National Football Foundation awarded Cincinnati Country Day School senior Connor Pohl of Oakley the “That’s My Boy” award, the highest honor an individual football player can receive in Greater Cincinnati.  The award is based on a combination of athletic, academic, and extracurricular achievements.

Pohl is more than deserving of the award with a resume including an All-State football selection, 4.7 GPA, 36 ACT score, and extracurriculars including Science Olympiad, Saturday Hoops volunteer, TEAMS club, and Mechanical Engineering club.  Pohl has been a three-year starter for the Indians playing offense, defense, special teams and never missing a snap during that period.
“Being able to represent Country Day at the That’s My Boy award banquet was an honor,” Pohl said. “I couldn’t have accomplished anything I have without the incredible support and guidance I’ve received from my family, coaches, and teachers. Winning the award was a great ending to my high school career.”

Connor Pohl, a Cincinnati Country Day School senior, received the National Football Foundation’s “That’s My Boy,” award, With Connor are his brother Cameron and sister Alexandra, both CCDS students, and his parents Dr. Gregory and Lynda Pohl.
Head coach Matt Hanhold said, “Connor embodies the identity of a Cincinnati Country Day football player, smart, tough, and physical with the expectation to give your very best every day, do what is right, and find a way to make someone else’s life better.”

Pohl joins illustrious Country Day history as the third “That’s My Boy” award recipient in program history, following Rodney Vincent in 1987 and Andrew Willis in 2001.
As Pohl prepares for life after Country Day, he has a number of college opportunities ahead of him and hopes to attend medical school after college.
