The Chicago Wolves created the Tim Breslin Memorial Scholarship, which provides a $7,500 stipend toward college tuition, in loving memory of former player Tim Breslin.
Breslin, who was one of the first three players signed by the franchise, passed away on Feb. 9, 2005, due to complications from appendiceal cancer. The Addison native and Driscoll Catholic High School graduate played five seasons with the Wolves and was a member of the 1998 Turner Cup Championship squad.
2022-23 Tim Breslin Memorial Scholarship Recipient
The Wolves announced the winner of the Tim Breslin Memorial Scholarship, given to an area high school student to help defray college tuition.
This year’s winner is Georgia Trakas, a senior from Hersey High School who is a 2022 Illinois State Scholar, a member of the National Honor Society, a certified nursing assistant and a tireless volunteer in her community.
“We look at kids who apply for that scholarship in a way that is reflective of who Tim was and how he lived and what he was about,” Jami Breslin said. “It really allows us to keep his legacy alive.”
