Nate Ferraco Sportsmanship Award

June 25, 2016

This past Sunday after our last Pittsburgh Diocese Soccer League championship game, we honored two players with the Nate Ferraco Sportsmanship Award. Nate Ferraco was a freshman at Geneva College who died in a car accident this past winter. Nate played in our League then went on to play soccer at Penn Hills HS and was valedictorian of his senior class. Nate was an excellent student, a skilled soccer player, and a fine young man. The awardees of the Sportsmanship Award were #10 Nicholas Pieto of St Alphonsus and #77 Alex Freiwald of East Catholic who both received multiple nominations throughout the season from opposing coaches. A special thanks to Mike Clark from WTAE for joining us to honor Nate. Mike was Nate's soccer coach in middle school and a close family friend. Rest in piece Nate and we will keep your memory alive!

From Nate's Family:

Mitch / Mike - Words cannot begin to express our gratitude for your kindness & support shown by planning, implementing and awarding the 1st Annual Nate Ferraco Sportsmanship Award from the Diocesan Soccer League. The huge magnitude of its success can be attributed to how much Nate loved playing soccer on all levels and his utmost respect for the game and his teammates.... He loved participating on every team he was ever a part of from the time he was very little until now, as we have watched all these young athletes turn into adults. He always put his full effort into every team, event, game or tournament just as all of you have put your full efforts into keeping his memory alive with this award. We are blessed to have so many kind, caring people in our lives. We have great memories of the many years spent playing and coaching Diocesan Soccer. Thank you again from our entire family.

Sincerely - Greg, Kolleen, Mike & Nicole Ferraco
