Master Atmaram Hanuman Jadhav, an intern at the Dempo Sports Club Academy has duplicated his soccer success on the field with his school, Fr. Agnel’s High School, Pilar naming him Best Student of the Year, 2017-18!

Son of Mr. Hanuman and Mrs. Pragati Jadhav, Master Atmaram is 14 years old and studying in Std. IX. The school awarded him the honour in respect of last year when he proved outstanding in Std. VIII.

It is remarkable that Atmaram is equally adept as a football intern. Described as aggressive and accurate on the field, the youngster makes more time for study in the academy hostel than his mates, looking up his books alone in the classroom at other timings than tutoring.

All academy officials are clearly delighted with the development, beginning with Technical Director Karnagaran (Katz) Naidoo, who is starting to see the results of his exhortations coming true that football interns need to be academically of a high standard, too. Head Coach Remus Gomes is all praise for his intern, as is Assistant Coach and Hostel Warden, Vaman Chari who describes him as an intern with the right mix of qualities. His tutor, Ms. Rekha D’Silva, is ecstatic about her model pupil, as are Atmaram’s parents.

Dempo SC Academy congratulates Atmaram Jadhav profusely on his achievement and wishes him more of such achievements going forward. Technical Director Naidoo looks forward to seeing other interns hitting the right spots in their studies as well!
