Football Education | Player Pathway Student of the Year | Rhys Blythe

Second-year student Rhys Blythe won Football Education Student of the Year, for his continuous hard work throughout the season.

Rhys received the highest grades possible, and will be heading to Manchester Metropolitan University to study Sport and Exercise Science.

Speaking on the award, Rhys said:

You’ve just won Student of the Year, how are you feeling?

I’m feeling good about it. I’m glad my hard work is paying off, by getting my assignments done at home and on time. Getting the final marks felt great.

How would you sum up your two years at County?

If I had to sum up the two years, I’d say it’s hard work. You have to work hard balancing the football with your education so you can get distinctions and get your assignments done. It’s a hard balance but if you get it right, it pays off.

What’s in store for you after you leave the course?

I’m planning on going to Manchester Metropolitan University to play University football while studying Sport and Exercise Science, while hopefully playing non-league at the same time.

What would you say to someone looking to join the course?

If you still want to play football while getting an education, you’ll get a very good balance because you’ll get a BTEC and at the same time, playing against different clubs.
