The application period for the 2017 Manion/Crescenz Award is now closed. Thank you for all the nominations
The Army-Navy Cup Committee is pleased to announce the second annual presentation of the First Lieutenant Travis Manion & Corporal Michael Crescenz Award. At Army-Navy Cup VI, held at Talen Energy Stadium on October 15, 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 October 15 at 2:00 p.m. Talen Energy Stadium, home of Philadelphia Union on the banks of the Delaware River in Chester, will host Army-Navy Cup VI. 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 (500 words). Nominations can be submitted online by clicking the link below:
