WIL WAHEE Three-time recipient of The James P. Soper III Football Scholarship WIL WAHEE Excellence and hard work in the classroom and on the field W hen Wil Wahee arrived at the Univer- sity of Virginia, one of his priorities was to challenge himself in the class- room. He's been successful, having been named to the 2015 ACC All-Academic Football Team and the ACC and UVA Athletics Honor Rolls. He com- pleted his undergraduate Sociology degree in less than four years and is currently pursuing a Master's Degree at the Curry School of Education. Wil hopes to put his dual degree toward an elementary school teaching po- sition, an interest sparked from the team's community service hours at local schools and from the leadership role he has taken on the football team. He attributes much of his academic success to the lessons learned as a student-athlete. He values the time management skills developed from balancing football and a full course load, most oen begin- ning his days at 6 a.m. As a fourth year, Wil continues to work hard. He notes, "Changes in the coaching staff have brought a new tempo to the team, emphasizing many of the values I take to heart. I'm incredibly excited and proud to be a part of a community where excellence and hard work are valued both in the class- room and on the football field."
