We are off to a great start of our soccer season and seeing so many Mustang players wearing their red or white uniforms around our neighborhoods is always a heart-warming spectacle for me. These young players range in age from four to 18, but without exception, they wear their uniforms with honor and pride and reflect our Club and community in such a positive way. 2020 was such a challenging year for us all, but spotting our players all over Danville, Alamo, and Blackhawk reminds me how important recreation has been and will be as we get past these crazy and tough times!
Lastly, each year, the Mustang Soccer League recognizes the remarkable accomplishments of our membership by presenting the Student Athlete Award. This prestigious award is granted to up to four Student Athletes for as much as $1,000 each, to honor our members’ accomplishments in the classroom, on the field, and in the community. Candidates must be high school seniors, in the Class of 2022. The award recipients will be notified in time for them to include the achievement on their college applications. The deadline to receive applications is: 10 pm, Friday, October 15, 2021. Please go to mustangsoccer.com for more information and to apply.
