The Raven Men's Soccer program is pleased to announced the awarding of the second recipient of the Peter Clevinger Legacy Scholarship.
Jordan Pfannenstiel was named this year's recipient at a match earlier this season and presented with a certificate by the Clevinger family.
"I am extremely honored to represent the values Peter Clevinger had and fostered throughout Benedictine," Pfannenstiel said. "Although I never met him, I could tell how important he was to the team when our previous coach Rob Herringer talked about him in the locker room. Peter really influenced his teammates by constantly battling and never giving up on the field, and his positivity brought the best out of everybody. I hope I can make a positive impact on my teammates and the culture of the men's soccer team as much as Peter Clevinger had."
A statement about Peter was read off during the presentation, it read: Pete was an extremely competitive soccer player that could play any position on the field if called on. What he brought to the playing field was his passion for the game and his extraordinary will to win. But what he enjoyed the most, in the heat of the battle, was seeing his teammates playing at their highest competitive level. For Pete, it was always about the team.
Clevinger was a four-year starter for the Ravens from 2006 through 2010 and was a integral part of the team that won the Heart of America Athletic Conference regular season championship in 2009. The 2009 team went on to represent Benedictine in the NAIA National Tournament that season in Fresno, Calif. Clevinger passed away in January of 2013.
