About The Josh Brown Youth Memorial Soccer Scholarship 

Josh Brown lost his life in a tragic auto accident on December 25, 2023. He was the nephew of Elliott, Powell, Baden, and Baker Founder Marc Baker.  Those who knew Josh knew he had two great passions: playing Soccer and coaching kids in the sport he loved. His family created the Josh Brown Memorial Youth Scholarship fund in his honor. 100% of the money donated to the fund is used to cover the cost of playing club soccer for two or more selected players annually who have a demonstrated passion for the game and who, without financial assistance, would otherwise be unable to play their sport at the club level.

Here is more about the two talented and dedicated 2024 Scholarship recipients .

“I am so impressed with both Zaid and Lily and their commitment to the sport,” says Baker Family Foundation Founder, Marc Baker “and I cannot think of a better way to honor Josh’s legacy that supporting youth players that love this sport.”
