Declan Quinlan Memorial QC Scholarship

Declan Quinlan Memorial QC Scholarship


In October of 2017, our community and a piece of the Queen City Family was taken from us too soon.  Declan Quinlan was an amazing young man who embodied so many wonderful characteristics that Queen City FC strives to possess.  Declan was one of the kindest players our club had the privilege of mentoring.  For those who knew him, they could tell many stories of his generosity, optimism, perseverance, irrepressible spirit, leadership, and his overall love for life and sense of fun. Declan Quinlan helps us to understand that beyond soccer our past and present athletes should strive for excellence, community, and love of the game


To celebrate Declan’s zest for life, Queen City FC will be providing a $500 scholarship to a graduating player whom exemplifies the characteristics that he lived by everyday.  It is our hope that through this Memorial Scholarship, Declan can continue to make a difference in the lives of many.  We will always remember his love, laughter and incredible spirit.
