Eddie Gratcofsky was an EPYSC coach, mentor, and friend who tragically passed in 2019. His passing was a terrible loss for the EPYSC community, and there is nothing that could ever fill the void in the heart’s of his family, players, or community. As a token of EPYSC’s appreciation and love for Coach Eddie, a Memorial Scholarship was formed in his name.
We are so proud and so honored to announce the first recipient of this meaningful scholarship. Joby Curtin, a young man who has grown up within EPYSC and has constantly served as a mentor and inspiration for those below him, could not be more deserving of our first Eddie Gratcofsky Memorial Scholarship.
In these tough times, we are so grateful to not only celebrate a wonderful young man with a bright future ahead, but also have the opportunity to help keep Coach Eddie’s memory alive within the hearts of players that knew him, and the many that will come after.
Congratulations to Joby. We wish you the best of luck for your next journey.
