  • Scholarship Description
  • This scholarship is intended for high school student athletes that have suffered a debilitating injury or illness (examples: cancer, catastrophic injury) to help them achieve their academic goals at a four-year academic institution.

    Kevin was known for supporting the underdog and standing up for what he believed was right. He was fiercely competitive and a high achiever. His family and the Foundation hope that his legacy of integrity, inspiration, and indomitable spirit can serve to motivate student athletes who find themselves facing new challenges and obstacles that have interrupted the track their lives were on. Overcoming and conquering life-changing events, while still having the courage and determination to attain a four-year degree, takes a strength of will, spirit, and integrity that will exemplify the recipient of this scholarship. The Foundation is acknowledging the hard work and incredible sacrifices already made by this individual and feels that the candidate deserves to have one more obstacle smoothed away in their pursuit of getting life...back on track.
