Soccer devotee deserves honor

The Marietta Soccer League Board of Directors would like to congratulate long-time board member, referee, coach, referee assignor and trainer, and overall soccer enthusiast Karl Kronberg for his selection as the 2014 Ken Conselyea Award winner in the state of Ohio.

The award is given out by the OSSRC (Ohio South Soccer Referee Committee) to an individual as a recognition to a lifetime of dedication to youth soccer in Ohio. Karl has given countless hours over the years to youth soccer not only in the Marietta area, but around the state. He is still actively refereeing games, teaches referee certification classes, and does all of the referee assigning for the Marietta Soccer League games, as well as the Marietta Classic.

His dedication to soccer in Ohio is greatly appreciated. Congratulations Karl.
