Sam Dillard Memorial Annual Soccer Event
In 2009, the Junior/Senior High Campus Chapel was renamed in honor of the late Sam Dillard, a beloved teacher, mentor, coach and friend to CCS students for over 30 years. He taught and coached the CCS boys' varsity soccer teams to more than 200 wins in his 30-year career. Sam died unexpectedly on November 16, 2008. He left behind a devoted community, respectful students, and a loving family, his wife and two daughters. Sam was truly well-respected by his fellow coaches and is best known by everyone for his faith in God and love of family. This annual soccer event is also to honor him. We miss you, Sam!
This annual soccer preview showcases local area boys' soccer teams. Each team plays one match, with a 40-minute running clock, without stoppages. After the preview, there is a match featuring CCS alumni vs. another local alumni team.
The Southwest Ohio Soccer Coaches Association setup a scholarship fund in 2009 for Sam's daughters. All proceeds from admission and concessions benefit the Sam Dillard Foundation.
