PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas – Prairie View A&M senior football standout Max Sencherey will trade his playbook in for a stethoscope as he was accepted to attend medical school at Oklahoma State University.

A native of Lake Jackson, Texas, Sencherey will start immediately at Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine which is located in Tulsa, Okla. The university’s medical school is nationally renowned for its excellence in primary care and rural medicine.

Sencherey was a two-year starter at middle linebacker and a two-time All-SWAC standout as he finished the 2010 campaign with 75 tackles. He’s a testament to the statement ‘hard work pays off’ as he joined the program as a walk-on and worked his way into becoming a solid student-athlete.

“For a guy who wasn’t very big and coming in behind (former All-American linebacker) Zach East, I thought he did an admirable job,” said Prairie View A&M head coach Heish Northern. “He was a leader on the team in terms of academics, voicing his opinion and getting people lined up correctly. That was a great accomplishment for a player who walked on and earned a scholarship.”

A Biology major with a 3.3 grade point average, Sencherey is also an example of someone who puts the team ahead of himself as he delayed his graduation to come back and play the 2010 season.

“It shows what kind of character he has for him to put off medical school for football,” said Northern. “He sacrificed for the team instead of putting his needs and wants ahead. I know Max will be successful because he will put forth the time and effort.”
