Soccer Coaches and Administrators,
The Army-Navy Cup Committee is pleased to announce the inaugural presentation of the First Lieutenant Travis Manion & Corporal Michael Crescenz Award. At the annual Army-Navy Cup held at Talen Energy Stadium, this award will be presented to two high school aged soccer players, one girl and one boy, who best exemplify the spirit of these two exemplary men who gave their lives in service to our country.
Throughout their lives both Travis and Michael lived by the motto “If Not Me Then Who...” Whether it was standing up for someone who was being bullied, helping someone in need, or stepping in to lend a hand, they were the ones to take action and to act as role models for others. They exemplified selfless service and lived a life of substance and not just existence.
We respectfully request that you nominate a player who lives by the motto “If Not Me Then Who...” to receive this award.
On Friday evening, September 23 at 7:00 p.m. Talen Energy Stadium, home of Philadelphia Union on the banks of the Delaware River in Chester, will host Army-Navy Cup V. The award will be presented at halftime of the match by members of the Manion and Crescenz families.
Nominees must be either juniors or seniors in high school, and nominations may come from clubs or schools.
We ask that you limit your nomination to one page. Please submit completed forms to Rob Bender at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, "Manion/Crecenz Award" and the nominee's last name.
For email submissions, or questions, please send to Rob Bender at email@example.com. You may also call Rob at 267-625-3459.
