Rahway High School’s Emmanuel Atilola was selected to compete in Saturday’s Penn Relays and he also received a full tuition scholarship.
Captain of Rahway’s sectional championship track and field team, Atilola will compete in the long jump at the prestigious Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Pa.
Atilola was one of only two New Jersey athletes chosen.
They will compete against top high school athletes from not only the United States, but also Jamaica and Zimbabwe.
In addition, last Monday Atilola signed a letter-of-intent to attend St. Peter’s College in Jersey City on a full tuition scholarship.
