2014 Salem News Student Athlete Award profile: Andrew Hall, St. John's Prep

His peers and members of the St. John’s Prep faculty see Andrew Hall as a “gentle giant” and a model of leadership around the Danvers campus.

Voted captain of the reigning Division 1 North finalist St. John’s Prep volleyball team, Hall has seen his fair share of achievement both athletically and academically.

A three-year varsity player in basketball and volleyball, Hall played a role in both of his team’s tournament runs.

“It was an easy decision because Andrew had all of the traits that I needed and that the team needed to continue to be successful,” volleyball coach Scott Celli said of choosing Hall as team captain. “Andrew is the best leader in the program. He is the most committed person in the program. Andrew has the ability to make the other team members better.”

The Lynnfield native is involved in Boy Scouts of America as an Eagle Scout mentor, project leader and freshman orientation leader tour guide.

He carries a 4.38 weighted grade point average and is currently a member of the National Honor Society. He is in all honors and AP classes and also scored a 2240 on his SATs.

“In the past four years, Andrew has learned the meaning of commitment, perseverance, humility, teamwork and time-management,” said math teacher Robert Hussey. “His ability to balance a demanding academic schedule, participation in the varsity sports program and community service is, he says, one of the greatest achievements. All of these qualities combined with maturity, a great sense of humor and a willingness to help anyone are a good indication of his leadership potential.”

While he’s already been accepted to MIT for a combined BS/MD program, he hasn’t yet made his decision on where he’ll attend college in the fall.
