Jack Frost is the premier over 30s tournament in Georgia and is organized and sponsored by Atlanta Metro Soccer League. The tournament THE SENTINELS of FREEDOM, Duluth Chapter, Duluth, GA
“Since 9/11, for every American who has died in battle, dozens more have survived, thanks to cutting edge medical care. That means, unlike any other time in history, many more severely wounded are coming home, faced with the challenges of putting their lives back together.
Sentinels Of Freedom provides four year “life scholarships” to help vets become self- sufficient. Our vets are finding that once they’re released from the hospital, they face the everyday hardships of finding a home, continuing their education, or going to work to support their families. Every American faces the same difficulties, but in the vet’s case, the situation is made more difficult because of their sacrifice.”
Rover White won the tournament with a last minute strike by Franklin Young over a stubborn Cruzeiros team. This is the third time that the Rover White wins the competition.
