At this year's AGM the Indiana ODP staff was able to recognize our two Spirit Award winners. The award is in remembrance of those ODP players who left too soon. It remembers the courage and passion of those who have passed tackled life and soccer with. This year's winners were Daphne Wright, Cutters SC, and Ethan Simmons, IFJ.
"She is the embodiment of a team member that lifts the spirit and effort of all those around her, from players to coaches, with her own example. Her composure is truly remarkable for an athlete her age." said Daphne's coach.
"With Ethan is it like having an the extra coach on the field. He acts with a positive attitude and does it with not only his words but his actions. He is always a great teammate making everyone around him better, and always enjoys the moments when he is playing the beautiful game", says Ethan's coach.
Congratulations to both Daphne and Ethan.
