The Army-Navy Cup Committee is accepting nominations for the 2023 First Lieutenant Travis Manion & Corporal Michael Crescenz Award.
This award is presented annually 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.
The award will be presented at halftime of Army Navy Cup X on October 13 at Subaru Park.
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.
Nominations are being accepted for a player who lives by the motto “If Not Me Then Who…” to receive this award. Eligible candidates, boys and girls, must be current juniors or seniors in high school. Nominations may come from clubs or schools.
