Over at the NC Soccer Forum, LDSM posted an interesting article about a teenage referee who has founded a scholarship program to help underprivileged kids get certified to referee soccer matches:

Even at 13-years-old, David Mulcahy thought as much about others as he did himself.

When he became a soccer referee after years of playing on teams in Roswell, he had a special thought.

“I kind of just innocently asked my mom why don’t more under privileged kids who actually need the money more than me. Why don’t they do this program,” shares Mulcahy.

It led to him founding a scholarship program for underprivileged kids called “Teach a Man to Ref.”

He learned the upfront costs of nearly $200 for everything from the test to uniforms are too expensive for many kids.

How cool is that?
