JASPER (NNDC) -Congratulations to Jasper High School senior Nicholas Freyberger on being the 2016 recipient of the local Boy Scouts Eddie Rottet Award.

Nicholas is the son of Doug and Pam Freyberger of Jasper.   Nicholas received his award during the boy scout’s annual breakfast held Sunday at the Jasper Knights of Columbus Hall.

The award is named for Eddie Rottet, an all-state basketball player for Jasper graduating in 1934.  The Wildcats made it to the IHSAA Final Four his senior year.

He was an Eagle Scout and received a scholarship to play basketball but died that summer of typhoid fever while working for a highway crew near Celestine.

The local scouts named the outstanding scout award in Rottet’s honor in 1935.
