VIERA VOICE Carl Kotala
Trey Schaneville has scored … again.
The Viera High senior, who is the all-time scoring leader in both football and basketball, is one of 24 student-athletes from throughout the state to be named by the FHSAA to the Florida Dairy Farmers 2018 All-State Academic team.
Schaneville is only the second Viera student-athlete to receive the honor. The other was Alexander Liles, who played golf and lacrosse for the Hawks in 2014.
The 24 honorees will be recognized at a banquet on June 11 in Gainesville. Each student will receive a $1,700 scholarship and a commemorative medallion.
“This is really cool,” Schaneville said. “To be chosen as one of the 24 students is a huge honor ... it’s just great to have all my hard work recognized and to be able to help my parents out with paying for college.”
In addition to scoring 1,210 points in basketball and 267 points in football, Schaneville also has served as his school’s representative for the Cape Coast Conference Leadership Council. He also has been a counselor at various youth sports camps and volunteered with the Viera-Suntree Little League Challenger division that provides children with physical and developmental disabilities the chance to take part in athletic events.
Throughout it all, he has maintained a 4.0 unweighted grade-point average with a weighted GPA of 4.7.
“My parents expect good grades and have always stressed it,” Schaneville said. “And I give credit to them for always making me understand how important my education is, which has always motivated me to do the best I can in the classroom.
“So, while my parents used to push me when I was younger, I’m the one who’s pushing myself mainly now because I understand how important my education is and how important getting good grades is.”
Schaneville will attend Florida Tech in the fall where he plans to play both football and basketball while studying business and sports management.
“I’m not completely sure what I want to do when I graduate college, but being a sports agent sounds cool, and hopefully, eventually becoming a general manager of some pro team.”
