The nonprofit organization offers the Triple Impact Scholarship.

The scholarship standards are: personal mastery, leadership and honoring the game.

Bugg initially found out he was a finalist for the scholarship through Twitter.

When he arrived home from school that day, his father told him that he had received an email about the good news.

Bugg is the cornerback for Williams Field High School’s varsity football team.

“I just love being on the team,” Bugg said. “Everyone is so friendly. We really know when to push each other and when to hold back a little bit. It’s a great family relationship.”

Varsity Football Coach Steve Campbell said Bugg is a great football player with unbelievable cover skills and that he is given the toughest player match-up each week.

“He is a team leader that has remarkable character,” Mr. Campbell said. “He is highly involved with school, takes honors and AP classes, and socially holds himself accountable. Tre always has a smile on his face and lives life knowing that he is taking advantage of every opportunity in front of him.”

Being the cornerback for a varsity team is not the only experience Bugg has had. He participated in several football camps and even went to China to play on the USA National football team this summer.

He also played in the 2016 International Bowl at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

“Getting to play in China was an amazing experience for me,” Bugg said. “It was really cool because I didn’t know anybody on the team, but we were still able to play together really well.”

Bugg has been given offers by Columbia University, Army West Point and the University of San Diego.

He has not yet made a final decision on a school, but he is confident that he wants to play college football.
