After moving back to Tampa, FL, Edmund attended C. Leon King High School where he played football and won the Guy Toph award for Tampa’s most outstanding football player. Edmund was drafted to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but also sported New England Patriot and Cleveland Brown jerseys throughout his career. His true loyalty, though, will always be with his alma mater - Auburn University.

The award is given to the student who demonstrates exceptional academic and athletic achievements, and exhibits excellent leadership, integrity, and courageous qualities.
