Patrick Sharpe – 2021 Victor Masi Award Recipient

Patrick Sharpe is the 2021 recipient of the Victor Masi Service Award for his work with youth football.  Pat served as president of the Elgin Pee Wee/Pop Warner youth football program from 1976 – 1988.  He was instrumental in bringing the Pop Warner system that evenly matched age and weight of boys in the program.  During this time, Sharpe worked  to develop Ducky Drake Field by adding a new scoreboard and acquiring the former locker room and turning it into a concession stand.  Pat added new helmets and body vests for all players for added protection and also added pom squads to involve more girls in the cheerleading program.  In addition, he worked with high school coaches Ray Haley and Ron Ellett to develop feeder programs to the high schools.  Later, he became the Midwest regional manager for Pop Warner football to cover a five state region and develop a “Little Scholar” program to include academics with football/cheerleading.

Elgin Sports Hall of Fame candidate Scott Johnson has been selected for induction to the Illinois Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame for 2020.  Congratulations to Scott and Jeff Myers for this wonderful honor!!
