On Saturday, U18 Coach Rick Mitchell hit a milestone few coaches ever meet.
Coaching the U18 Lazers, Rick coached his last home game for the club ending a 20-year period of coaching at Upper Moreland.
During those 20 years, he has not only been a coach but also a volunteer and a leader. Rick has held numerous board positions, including President for many years. On Saturday many of Rick’s former players, family and friends gathered at Pileggi’s back field to honor Rick for his service, devotion and commitment to the families and children of the Soccer club over the past 20 years.
In recognition for Ricks service, the board has unanimously voted to name the Upper Moreland Soccer Club Volunteer of the Year award after Rick in honor of his dedication to the club. In addition, the Lazers won their game 5-0.
Please join us in congratulating and thanking Rick on his years of service with the club.
