We are proud to announce the 2018 Ela College Scholarship winners are Emma Daleske and Raffaele Consalvo. We wish them everything of the best in their future endeavors.
Emma’s soccer career began with Ela at the age of 4 and has culminated in captaining the U19 Elite team in her final season. Emma loves the game, is extremely hard working, dedicated and a great motivator. She has consistently demonstrated these qualities throughout the years and embodies all the qualities we expect from our players. A great example for current and future players.
"I have become addicted to the sound of a ball connecting with my foot, the smell of sweaty pinnies and the tightening of my laces. Since I first started playing soccer, I fell in love with the game and I have never stopped loving it." Emma Daleske
Joining Ela Soccer’s inaugural Academy program in 2007 at the age of 6, Raffa’s exemplary attitude and passion for the game has always been evident. Captain of his team Raffa has a great work ethic and is a true leader both on and off the field. He is a great role model and ambassador for the club and the sport.
"When I play everything stands still and the only thing that matters are the people on the field, the ball and the score……soccer has created a world for me that no one can touch… It has made my life a beautiful thing….my world is a soccer ball." Raffa Consalvo
The Ela Soccer Club College Scholarship was introduced in 2012 to support our senior athletes who are attending college.
