One of those honorees will be Liam Wintz, who has been selected as the 2017 NJYS TOPSoccer Volunteer of the Year.

Wintz has been a dedicated volunteer for the TOPSoccer program at West Morris Soccer Club since 2012, where he manages and recruits volunteers. He is continually praised for having a tremendous amount of enthusiasm and energy when working with the TOPSoccer Buddies and overseeing their events. Additionally, he extends his passion for TOPSoccer to everyone who is involved, priding himself on getting to know each individual player in the program.
