Anne Arundel Youth Soccer selects Sides for Sommer Award
Recipient chosen for his leadership
Terry L. Sides of Arnold has been chosen as the second recipient of the Joe Sommer Award presented by the Anne Arundel Youth Soccer League for outstanding leadership and dedication to the sport in Anne Arundel County.
The award, named for former AAYSL president and Crofton resident Joe Sommer, will be presented to Sides on April 14 at the organization's regular monthly meeting at the Winterode Building in Crownsville. Larry Castro of Greater Arnold Recreation Council Inc. was the inaugural winner in 1992.
Sides, a senior systems analyst for the Maryland Ports Administration, served two terms as treasurer of the AAYSL before completing an unexpired term as president beginning in December 1990.
"Terry was the architect of our computer scheduling program, which was a necessity with more than 240 teams playing soccer in five age groups," said AAYSL president Lou Rosenthal. "But he also provided great leadership and direction when the organization was in turmoil."
