East Fishkill Youth Referee(s) Of The Year Award 2020

The East Fishkill Soccer Club is pleased to recognize the accomplishments of the winners of the youth Referee of the Year awards. The annual “Young Referee of the Year” award honors those who have a strong work ethic, knowledge of the rules of the game and are positive role models.

Through the youth referee program, Youth Soccer helps foster the development of referees for the future of soccer in East Fishkill and US youth soccer. Many of the leagues around the area would not be able to cover all of their games but not for the involvement of our youth referees, whom are an integral part of the fabric of our youth soccer program.

The Young Referee of the Year recipients are awarded for their dedication to the game, their outstanding personal accomplishments, serving as role models to other youth referees and players, and for their excellence as recognized by their adult referee peers and mentors.

On behalf of the East Fishkill Soccer Club, please join us in honoring three amazing individuals for their extraordinary efforts during this season and beyond. Cole Horos, Jake Murray and Kayla Klosen, we are honored and proud you are part of this community and we look forward to following your bright future.

Cole Horos has played soccer with EFSC since he was 4 years old. Cole started refereeing in 2016, when he was just 12 years old. Cole has worked countless games and EFSC sponsored tournaments. Cole was nominated as the 2016 MDT up and coming referee for his poise, effort, and ability by MLS Referee Robert Sibiga. Cole plans to continue playing in college and we wish him the best of luck!

Kayla Klosen has been playing soccer since she was 4 years old, growing up with the EFSC. Kayla is a great mentor and all-around professional and has been refereeing with EFSC since she was 11 years old. Kayla officiated her first GU11 travel match, when she herself was just 11 years old. What an amazing role model Kayla has been, not only for fellow referees but for all the young girl soccer players in EFSC. Kayla continually gives back to the community by volunteering and has signed to play soccer at Wagner College next year. Best of luck Kayla!

Jake Murray started refereeing in 2015, when he was 12 years old. Jake has been a workhorse for the club ever since. Working in every Memorial Day and Dutchess Cup tournament since becoming a referee. Jake has continually worked long full days refereeing Intramural and Travel matches. Jake has enjoyed playing the game since he was four years old, most of that time spent with the East Fishkill Pythons. We cannot “Thank” Jake enough for his dedication to the club! Jake plans to follow his soccer dreams into college and the EFSC wishes you all the best!
