Moe Rosensteel Player of the Year Finalists Announced

The Kaitlyn “Moe” Rosensteel Scholarship Foundation announced today the three finalist for the Moe Rosensteel Player of the Year Award. The three finalists were voted on by a panel of high school coaches and media members covering soccer in Western Pennsylvania.  

The three finalists have not only demonstrated a high level of play but were identified for their leadership, passion and love for the game. These characteristics identified were those of the award’s  namesake Kaitlyn “Moe” Rosensteel.

Kaitlyn “Moe” Rosensteel was taken from us June 13, 2019.

She was loved by her family and friends.  Moe grew up playing the game she loved with her sister and her friends. The game of soccer built those long-lasting friendships and created many others.

The game gave Moe the opportunity to play at the collegiate level, though she would never get a chance to take the field. The Kaitlyn “Moe” Rosensteel  Scholarship Foundation provides this award in her memory.

Last year’s recipient was Ellie Coffield, Mars High School.
