The New Era Pinstripe Bowl, in association with the New York Yankees, the Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL) and Nike, will partner to host the 2018 MVP Scholar-Athlete Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, December 18, in the Legends Suite Club at Yankee Stadium. The event will honor 11 scholar-athletes from each of New York City’s five boroughs, recognizing these individuals for their outstanding academic and athletic achievements.
In addition, the 55 scholar-athletes will be recognized on-field during the 2018 New Era Pinstripe Bowl, in which the ACC’s University of Miami Hurricanes will take on the Big Ten’s University of Wisconsin Badgers.
This will mark the ninth consecutive year that the New Era Pinstripe Bowl has partnered with the PSAL to host the event at Yankee Stadium. Earlier this month, Yankee Stadium played host to its ninth consecutive PSAL Football City Championship Game, which saw the Erasmus Hall Dutchmen defeat the South Shore Vikings, 34-7, on Dec. 4.
Media members wishing to cover the awards ceremony must apply for credentials through the New Era Pinstripe Bowl Media Relations office by e-mailing their request to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Tuesday, December 18.
