A Fox Chapel Area junior has been recognized as a Positive Athlete by the group for which former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward serves as ambassador.

Brent Brewster is a winner in the boys swimming and diving category of the 2019 Positive Athlete program, among athletes in other sports from North Allegheny, North Catholic and Hampton.

He will be lauded during a ceremony tonight at the Positive High School Athlete Awards at the Heinz History Center, downtown.

Brewster is in the running for a $5,000 scholarship sponsored by Mylan, and has already received a private tour of the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex and UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.

He will be recognized on the field at Tuesday’s Pittsburgh Pirates game against the Detroit Tigers.

Since it’s inception, Positive Athlete has awarded more than $250,000 in college scholarships to high school student athletes based on their character and performance.

Athletes who have overcome difficult circumstances, given back to their communities or have an outstanding attitude are eligible.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
