2017 Bowl4Life Scholarship Recipients:
Not only did we give the ONE scholarship we promised, but thanks to our amazing sponsors and supporters, Davey Rosen and Ken Roper, we were able to give TWO additional scholarships. So a total of $3,000 was awarded to three deserving young athletes.
Coach's Comment: "I love his competitive drive, class of sportsmanship and professional demeanor. He is competitive, sharp and disciplined. He knows how to win but also how to lose – he manages defeat and learns from the experience – He is a true leader and will be an excellent role model for Bowl4Life and bowling in general. He is hardworking with an unbelievable passion for our sport. He is also a great young man and very deserving of this honor."
From his application: "Bowling is my life and has made me the person who I am today. Bowling is not just a sport, it is a way of life."
