Coach’s efforts to remember Sandy Hook victims featured in N.Y. Times blog

The New York Times highlighted Quinnipiac University‘s head women’s soccer coach’s efforts to remember and honor the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School in a recent blog post.

Dave Clarke is working to keep the victims’ memories alive by auctioning 113 soccer jerseys autographed by the top players and teams from around the world. The money collected will be used to seed a scholarship fund.

“I had no idea how big that was going to be,” Clarke told the Times. “It’s been nonstop, but in a good way. I’m like a kid on Christmas going to the post office every morning, but it’s important to temper that excitement because the reason for the auction is not a happy one. Sandy Hook was something that tugged at the heartstrings of the world. We want to keep the victims’ names alive.”
