The Annual Honors and Awards Banquet has always been the highlight of the PSCA and this year was no exception. Our Board members and committee chairs take great pride in celebrating and recognizing our best players and coaches each year. Through their volunteer efforts, time, and attention to detail they have made this event so special for our players, parents, and coaches. This year the PSCA Honors and Awards Banquet was held at the The Penn Harris Hotel Harrisburg on January 27th, 2024. This afternoon event was attended by almost 500 players, parents and coaches. Our Male and Female All State players were there to receive their certificates and a Select soccer ball. The USC Regional All-America and USC National All-America Boys and Girls were recognized by PSCA Master of Ceremony Michael Lorback. Brady Costin from Conestoga High School and Kayla Keefer from Central Columbia High School were honored as the Male and Female Player of the Year in Pennsylvania. The PSCA Coaches of the Year and Assistant Coach of the Year Awards were presented with their plaques. The culmination of the banquet was the presentation of the 2024 PSCA Honor Award and Hall of Fame Inductees. This year, the Service Award was given to Robert Fredrickson from Williamsport. Hall of Fame Inductees are Wilson Hartfranft from Conrad Weiser and our first female inductee, Jodi Chmielewski from Pine Richland. Steve Steffen was recognized posthumously and the award was accepted by his son. The most prestigious Honor Award was given to Bob Peffle from Plymouth Whitemarsh HS. Also, time was taken to remember two former presidents who have passed. Charles B. Meminger, Jr. (1984-85), and Gene Klein (1990-91) Not only have both of these men served as PSCA President, but their total contributions to our organization are immeasurable.
