Congratulations Tal Dean - ST. LOUIS SPORTS COMMISSION'S YOUNG PROFESSIONALS GROUP SPORTSMANSHIP SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

Tal Dean
The Parkway North soccer player is being recognized for his selflessness and kindness. Earlier this year, Tal and another player went up to challenge for a head ball and collided. Both players not only hit each other hard but landed hard. Tal immediately went over and checked to see if the other player was okay and motioned to the referee to signal that the player needed medical attention. Tal sustained a concussion as a result of the collision but thought of the other player before himself. His display of compassion and respect for his opponent will not soon be forgotten by anyone on the field that day.
