2015 DJ Griffiths Travel Boys Scholarship

BSA is pleased to announce that the board has voted to create a boys scholarship fund to assist families in need from the city of Brunswick cover the cost of a soccer season.  The BSA soccer community is a close group who are compassionate about giving every child in the community a chance to participate at the next level. We are happy to announce that the scholarship will be named the DJ Griffiths Memorial scholarship. DJ was a former player who passed away a few years ago, at the young age of 32. His father was a long serving referee and assignor for BSA.

 

"DJ loved the game of soccer.  He played in Brunswick travel from the age of ten until he was fourteen.  He also was a referee for many years, and in my opinion a pretty good one too.  He also helped his father coach a travel team as he got older on an as needed basis.  He blew out his knee before his freshman season, so he never played for Brunswick HS.  DJ gave 100% every time he stepped on the field, and knew no other way to play the game he so loved." -- Dave Griffiths, father

We have a few volunteers who have already begun working on fundraising for this scholarship. We are looking for a few more people who would like to volunteer to be on the committee to provide insight and ideas.  The introduction of this scholarship for boys in our community is very important. If you are interested, please respond to this email as soon as possible to Deanne Rauscher at drausch899@gmail.com, so that we can get things moving in order offer this scholarship for this fall's soccer season.

Thank you,
