2012-2013 Bobby Rhine Referee Scholarship Recipients
The FC Dallas Foundation’s Bobby Rhine Referee Scholarship is designed to accomplish the following:
The expected return on this investment is great, as youngsters who receive initial training can seek additional funding to recertify their licenses annually. We can track the officiating accomplishments of these children each year, as they apply for FC Dallas Foundation assistance with recertification.
The Foundation is pleased partner with North Texas Soccer, and work with the state referee committee, to announce this year’s scholars, Alyssa Cox and Nohely Torres.
Alyssa Cox is 15 years old and attends Lake Dallas High School, where she plays soccer. She aspires to continue making good grades and to go to college. She is the youngest of three children being raised by a single father.
Nohely Torres just graduated from John Paul II High School as a scholarship student. She has been playing soccer since age 12. She played for JPIIHS and will be playing at the University of Dallas in the fall, where she plans to major in business.
Ms. Cox and Ms. Torres attended their referee classes in July and will begin working in August. Also in August, the scholars will be “Interns for a Day” at FC Dallas, where they will spend time with each department in the FC Dallas organization. On Aug. 11, the scholars were recognized at the FC Dallas match against Colorado.
