Steve Jolley and Rachel Breton will serve as emcees for the night and help honor the players, coaches and volunteers that made 2015 so special for NJ Youth Soccer.

Jolley’s illustrious career in soccer began with Virginia where he starred in the Olympic Development Program. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Galaxy in the 1997 MLS College Draft and played every minute of the 2000 and 2001 season with the MetroStars. In addition to being an MLS All-Star on the field, he was an example off the field earning MLS Humanitarian of the Year honors in 2002 in part for his effort for 9/11 related charities. Currently, Jolley is the lead color analyst for the NY Red Bulls on radio network and XM Sirius broadcasts and holds a National “B” License, giving back to the game that provided him so much.

Breton, a Rutgers graduate, joins the event with a plethora of NJ soccer experience. She was part of NJ Youth Soccer’s Olympic Development Program, starring on state, regional and interregional teams. She is currently a member of the Sky Blue FC roster and is described as a terrific overall athlete who is capable of playing anywhere on the field, strong on the ball and has great quickness.

She has played professionally in Norway, England, Russia, and Brazil for interregional/national pool play, while remaining a role model off the field where she gives her time supporting today’s youth at State Cups and ODP events.
