BRYC Tops ODSL Fall 2015 Sportsmanship Awards
Three Division 1 Squads Earn Coveted Honor

Each season the teams in the ODSL vote for another team in their division which exhibits the best sportsmanship. The winning team is awarded the Randy Rawls Sportsmanship Award, named after one of the leagues original founders and its first President.  The award honors the winner’s sense of fair play, something for which Randy was renowned as he sought to bring soccer opportunities to the youth of Northern Virginia. The sportsmanship winners receive an amazing trophy for the team/coach and individual awards for the players. 

For the Fall 2015 season, three BRYC teams earned the prestigious honor, a number matched by only two other clubs particicipating in the ODSL and the only one where all three winning teams participated in the ODSL's Division 1, the highest level of competition.  Coach Erin Silks' U10B BRYC Force and Coach Yong Kim's U11B Strikers won the honor on the boys' side while the BRYC Lady Spurs won the honor among the U11 Girls.  For the fall season that team was coached by Rich Wyant, Tommy Rezendes, and Jim Godlove, stepping in after the untimely passing of the teams previous coach, Brian Godlove, who was named the team's "Coach in Honor". There is no doubt he looked down at them all season and is very proud of their accomplishment.
