Isett named George Fisher Scholar Athlete at Pacific Lutheran

Posted: June 21, 2011 - 7:42pm

Juneau-Douglas alum and former football player Richard Isett Jr. was named the George Fisher Award winner at Pacific Lutheran University.

Isett may have provided the single-most thrilling moment during the 2010-11 Pacific Lutheran sports year when he kicked a 49-yard field goal on the last play of the game to give the Lutes a 31-28 victory over rival University of Puget Sound.

While that certainly left a lasting impression, Isett also excelled as an outside linebacker, leading the Lutes with 64 tackles and 14.5 tackles for loss to earn first team All-Northwest Conference recognition.

Named PLU’s Defensive MVP, Isett was selected to the All-West Region third team while helping PLU compile an 8-1 overall record and a second-place finish in the conference standings.

A political science major, Isett has a 3.89 grade-point average, was co-founder and vice president of the PLU Pre-Law Club, has been a regular member of the Dean’s List and graduated Magna Cum Laude.

A native of Juneau, Alaska, Isett has also participated on the football team’s mentorship program with Lister/First Creek schools.

On a side note, Alaska governor Sean Parnell, a Pacific Lutheran alum, gave the commencement speech at Isett’s graduation on May 29.
