Savannah Posey Seasonal Soccer Scholarship Award
Name of Scholarship: Savannah Posey Soccer Scholarship Award
Who is Eligible: Any current DCFC player wishing to play recreation or travel soccer
Qualifications: Candidates will be recommended by members, coaches, directors, and board members. All candidates should reflect the qualities that made Savannah a special young lady. Although Savannah was a quality soccer player, this is not a skill based award. Candidates should be positive role models, enjoy the game of soccer, and always have a positive attitude on and off the field. In short, the winning candidate should be a ray of light and have a love for the competition of sports.
Award: The DCFC Board and/or the Posey family will decide award winners per soccer season. The recipient player/family will be notified prior to the season and the award will offset costs associated with that season.
Savannah Posey: “Soccer taught me confidence, teamwork, and discipline both on and off the field. It taught me to live life to its fullest. Never give up, and you'll have no regrets.”
Savannah was a positive and pleasant part of our community for many years. She and her family have been, and are, positive and respected members of our soccer community. Savannah loved soccer. She wore a smile on her face and she was always quick with a kind word to those around her. It is her love of soccer and her positive approach to the sport that we wish to forever remember with this award.
Savannah passed away on July 23, 2012 and left behind a grieving family and soccer community. She was 16 years of age and was taken by an undetected and rare health disorder.
