2007 Samford Scholarship Goes to IM Josh Friedel

Chess Life Online and the USCF have announced that the 2007 Samford Scholarship winner is IM Josh Friedel.

Josh is well on his way to becoming a grandmaster, with two GM norms under his belt. A brief Chess Life discussion of Josh appears here. Josh also had a number of comments for me after the initial U.S. Chess School session from January 2006. You can read about his experience there in my March 2006 Scholastic Chess column at ChessCafe.
