Maryland AAU High School Sullivan Finalist Jumps to Success
Mason Rogers had quite a year for himself. He graduated from high school, got accepted into Stanford, had an internship at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab and won a $2,500 scholarship from the AAU High School Sullivan Award. His latest achievement, earning the High School Sullivan Award Scholarship, was a perfect way to prove that all of his hard work in not only his academics, but also his athletic career, has paid off.
“I am excited and pleasantly surprised,” Rogers said about winning the award. “It is an honor to be recognized by the AAU like this, and I am glad that the time and effort I put into jump rope have merited this award.”
As a student, Rogers holds a 4.1+ GPA while taking all AP classes, except for his Honors Spanish I, II, and III courses, in his junior and senior years. He earned the Harvard Book Award for Outstanding High School Juniors and the Parker Award for Outstanding High School Athlete. He is a National Merit Scholar, AP National Scholar and Cason Scholar and was on the All-County Math Team. As mentioned previously, he did his senior year internship as Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, which will undoubtedly give him a leg up on his peers at Stanford and help him achieve his future career goals.

As a youth, Scott Simpson tried soccer and gymnastics. Neither sport caught his fancy like a sport that's a little out of the mainstream of athletic endeavors -- jump rope.
"It's one of the most creative sports that I have been involved with. Jump rope is perfect for me and it gives me a creative outlet," he said.
