Brian V. Fritts "Bridges" Scholarship

The Brian V. Fritts "Bridges" Scholarship program was created in 2018 after the sudden death of coach Brian Fritts, member of #OPNation.  Brian spent 20 years coaching soccer in the Dublin community, touching the lives of many young people and their families. This scholarship program was started by OP in partnership with the Fritts family to preserve his proud legacy in the game of soccer.  

 

Scholarships are awarded to members of underserved and underrepresented communities in central Ohio. We are proud to continue to expand access to the sport Brian so loved and grow the game as Brian worked to do within the central Ohio soccer community.

Lindsay E. Agnew "Rise Above" Scholarship

The Lindsay Agnew "Rise Above" Scholarship program was created in 2019 to commemorate the success of Lindsay Agnew after her time as a member of #OPNation.  She played soccer for Ohio Premier for 5 years and helped lead the u18 ECNL team to a National Championship in 2013.  Lindsay continued her playing career at The Ohio State University and then played professionally in the NWSL, Australian W League, and Swedish Damallsvenkan.  She also was named a member of the Canadian Women's National Team and was part of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Roster.

 

Scholarships are awarded to girls' soccer players who need support in their pursuit of their love of soccer.  By expanding access to the game we hope to continue to expand the women's game and provide opportunities for more players to reach the highest level of player like Lindsay Agnew.
