This scholarship is presented in honor and recognition of Edward “Ed” Placke for his years of service to the sport of youth soccer in the Capital District. Edward Placke dedicated many years establishing soccer programs for children to play in a fun, competitive and enriching environment. Many young soccer players have grown and developed into fine young adults and athletes through programs Ed spearheaded. He recently retired from soccer in the Capital District and NY Elite FC would like to thank him for what he has established and for what will continue to carry on for years to come. In the spirit of NY Elite FC Soccer, the club will award four $250 college scholarships to two boys and two girls that best exemplify the spirit of true sportsmanship in the sport of soccer. Applicants must be graduating high school seniors that are attending college in the fall and are current NY Elite FC club members,
