Antonio Tsialas Scholarship Recipient
In honor of our friend Antonio Tsialas, who sadly passed away recently, ASLF awarded a scholarship to Gerald Escobar, a goalkeeper for Miami Breakers. Antonio was an amazing goalkeeper, student, and friend, and our foundation searched for a deserving recipient in Antonio’s memory. It is fitting that Gerald earned this scholarship, as Antonio actually coached him last summer at the Breakers summer camp. Gerald’s club director, Eric Vasquez, introduced him to us a few months ago, and we were extremely impressed with his personality and work ethic in both his academics and in soccer. We presented the scholarship at a training session in December, with Antonio’s mother and grandmother in attendance as well.
