2017-18 HSA Scholarship Winners
Grand Prize Winner - Amir Couillard

Amir Couillard (parents Ted & Naheed) runs to set a ball at Walt Hundley during a home match. With lots of hard work, Amir mastered many dribbling and foot skills techniques, and he now coaches others in those skills. Amir graduated from West Seattle High School. He is now attending Western Washington University. He is roommates with his teammate and best friend, Andy Dirks. Amir continues to work on his own or play pickup soccer daily.

1st Prize Winner - Jonathan Vair

Jonathan Vair (parents John & Julie) beats a tackle at an away match in Puyallup (above). Jonathan captained the HPFC Heat '00 team for two years - a model example of a leader, teammate, and athlete. An Eagle Scout and National Merit Scholar, Jonathan graduated from Kennedy Catholic High School and is now attending and playing for the University of Puget Sound (UPS) - also in Puyallup - receiving consistent time as a Freshman this season (picture below), and wearing #24, the same number he had at HPFC.

2nd Prize Winner - Luke Tolton

Luke Tolton (parents John and Mary) runs past an opponent after a big touch at an away match in Puyallup. Luke's determination, rock-hard shot, and corner kick services often wound up creating game-winning goals and inspiring the team with his tenacious spirit. Word has it, he's a great chef as well. Luke attended and played for Kennedy Catholic high school. He is now attending Gonzaga University.
