“Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.” – Kevin Durant

Three-sport athlete J.J. Rosa has racked up multiple awards and honors throughout his high school career at Blue Ridge. 

These awards include: 1st-team All-Defense in football; 2nd team All-Star in basketball; 2020 Team Defensive Player of the Year, and 2022 Gold Glove Award winner. 

Rosa says his favorite high school memories involve sports and time with his friends.

“One of my all-time favorite memories,” says Rosa, “is of beating Old Forge 62-61 in overtime. I remember everyone storming the court, and Wes Parks falling over.”

“At school, being with my friends is what makes each day better.” 

“In fact,” says Rosa, “the thing I will miss most about high school is being with my friends, and, of course, I’ll miss Mr. Bitner, always.” 

Rosa plans to attend college and continue playing playing sports on the collegiate level but has not yet decided which school he will attend.

Rosa participates in high school football, basketball, and baseball. He also a member of the Blue Ridge Envirothon Club.
