Summer Reading

Two bits of good news about Bears present and past:

The Washington Capitals and a Bear

Sam Anas is invited  to the Washington Capitals NHL Rookie Development Tryout Camp ( ). It will be held at Kettler rink in Arlington VA, starting Sunday July 7 and the last session (7/13), a scrimmage, will be part of the Caps Fan Fest.

It would be great  to have a LARGE Bears cheering section for Sam.



News Alert: Landon Rising Seniors Selected for N.F.L. Leadership Program

Hartman, Seagears head to event at U-Penn.

Kyle Hartman ’14 and Dominique Seagears ’14 are participating in the National Football League–Wharton Prep Leadership Program (NWPLP) at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The program takes place Monday-Thursday, June 24-27. Only 36 high school student-athletes from around the country are selected to take part.

Hartman and Seagears have been selected by their teammates to serve as captains on the varsity football team in the fall. Hartman started four games at quarterback last season, helping the squad to their first I.A.C. championship since 2008.

“Kyle made our team better, not just because of his play but by his character and leadership,” Head Football Coach Paul Padalino says. “He earned the respect of all his teammates and has set a standard for those who will follow him. Kyle is one of our best leaders at Landon.”

Seagears, a wide receiver and defensive back, displayed leadership skills last year while spending only his second year as a Landon student.

“Dominique is a not a loud rah-rah kind of leader, but a quiet, leader by example. He works hard and is competitive,” Padalino says. “I believe that he possesses the skills and intangible qualities of a successful leader.”

According to its Web site, NWPLP recognizes student-athlete success both on the field and in the classroom. The program is a selective leadership and achievement recognition program for elite male and female student-athletes participating in all sports. Participants receive specific leadership training and development programming designed by The Wharton School.
