Ed Moore was unconditionally devoted to the game of soccer. As a player, a fan, parent and coach he loved being around the game. He could always be counted on with his stats and scouting reports before every match. He tirelessly planned and organized behind the scenes. Whether it was working as a member of the boosters, a team administrator, or one of his countless other jobs, he always went above and beyond volunteering his time.
On the field he was a tremendous player, still holding a record as a goalie at Penn State. He was loved and respected by his players and fellow coaches. A man of few words, he spoke with his endless acts of kindness and thoughtfulness. There was nothing more important to him than his players and his desire for all young student athletes to have the opportunity to purse higher education and play ball. In his memory we have created the Ed Moore Velocity Memorial Scholarship Fund that will go to a deserving student athlete from our club, his club, each year to assist in achieving their dreams of higher education and playing soccer.
Each year Velocity has a graduating senior, a scholarship will be awarded to one player who demonstrates the qualities Ed possessed. We are looking for someone who is passionate and dedicated not only to the game of soccer but to their team, the organization and most importantly their educational career.
