Last weekend was a mixed emotion weekend for me. I was supposed to travel to Kansas City with Pat Ferre and our wives to watch Pat receive the US Youth Soccer Volunteer of the Year Award.
This is a tremendous honor, and Pat had his bags packed. Covid 19 got in the way, and Pat was in and out of the hospital instead of going to Kansas City.
Anne and I went and represented Pat. Please watch the video to see the speech I gave that Pat wrote starting at 32 minutes.
It was so sad that Pat could not be there, for all those years of helping with soccer to get such a prestigious award, and you get Covid. Pat, thank you from all of us; get well soon, and hopefully, you can go to Philadelphia next year.
