Romond looking forward to football, studies as he heads to Hopkins

Recent St. Joe’s grad Tommy Romond (right, with coach Rich Hillilard) was the winner of the 2020 Fundraising University Unsung Hero Scholarship Award.

Tommy Romond is always up for a challenge.

Last summer, it was getting together his teammates when they couldn’t practice to get ready for a football season that no one quite knew if it would even happen.

In a few weeks, he’ll be off to college to play football at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Playing college ball – any varsity sport, really – is a big enough challenge at any university. But couple it with enrollment in the Biomedical Engineering program, and now you’ve got a challenge.

Challenge accepted.

Central Jersey Sports Radio’s Mike Pavlichko caught up with Tommy at Brenner Family Field in Metuchen Thursday to deliver his $500 scholarship award, as well as a commemorative football with his photo on it, for being the inaugural winner of the Fundraising University Unsung Hero Scholarship Award.
