The Sean Finnegan Award:
Sean Finnegan was a magnificent young man who tragically lost his life in 2010. Thiose who knew Sean, knew how special a person he was. He was caring and kind and most of all, a fantastic example for those around him. He played for many years in the Lynbrook East Rockaway Soccer Program and represented all that is good about the club. He believed in the value of sportsmanship within the game of soccer and it is with this in mind that this scholarship is awarded each year to the male and female high school senior player that possesses the same characteristics that Sean had.
