St. Pius X Catholic High School Receives $5,000 from Georgia Injury Attorneys Montlick & Associates

The Georgia Injury Attorneys from Montlick & Associates, are proud to honor Nicholas Ruffin from Atlanta, Georgia, as the "2013 Montlick & Associates' Athlete of the Year." In honor of Nicholas and his achievement as the 2013 Athlete of the Year, Montlick & Associates donated $5,000 to St. Pius X Catholic High School. "We hope this donation will allow the faculty and staff at St. Pius X Catholic High School to continue their efforts in providing an academic environment in which students can prosper and achieve their potential," says Founder and CEO David Montlick.

Nicholas ranks as the number one safety in Georgia, and has played on the varsity team at St. Pius since his freshman year. On game night Nicholas is rarely off the field excelling as a safety and cornerback for the St. Pius Golden Lions. Those who know him best say Marcus achieves goals both in the classroom and on the field. Coach Paul Standard says, "The list of what he does outside of school is very impressive, and he gives back to the community." The Montlick and Associates' Athlete of the Year has signed with Auburn University to play football for the Tigers, but his academic goals are just as impressive as his skills on the field. Nicholas plans to major in mechanical engineering and minor in microbiology.

The Montlick & Associates "Athlete of the Year" is part of a season long partnership with WSB-TV Channel 2. During the regular 2013 football season, Montlick & Associates and WSB-TV Channel 2 partnered each week for 11 weeks to recognize student athletes who excel both on and off the field as the Montlick & Associates' Athletes of the Week. The 2013 winning student athletes are:

Congratulations to all 11 winners! We wish you the best of success in all your future endeavors - both on and off the field!
