So many of Coach Brian Elliott's players, peers, and friends recall this being a famous phraseology Coach would use. Understanding Coach Elliott's passion, soccer, was fueled by a conviction of Faith, we can then understand how "You're awesome" was so well received, remembered, and impactful.
These simple two words, "You're Awesome", flowed from a servant's heart, who was Faithful in his understanding of the Truth. You did not just hear "You're Awesome", but you were transformed by the words, because Coach believed it, and he was convicted by the statement. Thus, in that moment you were transformed.
Coach Elliott, coached to teach, and taught to preach, and he lived to carry out his preaching. The soccer field, and the soccer community were his arena.
In 2023 we are humbled to play the WSA Cup Tournament in Honor of this man's life, to expand Coach Elliott's legacy, and enhance his influence. We honor a life well lived. We humbly set out to expand on a legacy that we believe in, and feel convicted by. We are gracious for the life Coach Elliott shared with us, and we consider our responsibility to expand his legacy as an honor of highest esteem.
Mrs. Kathleen Elliott expressed the family's excitement for this opportunity to expand Coach Elliott's legacy, "The Elliott family is incredibly touched and thankful to WSA for the UR Awesome tournament. We encourage all participants to pursue Coach Elliott's advice to compete hard, but love harder. We are proud to be associated with such an outstanding event directed by individuals committed to teamwork, sportsmanship, passion, and commitment. Thank you!"
