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.
2021-22 Tim Breslin Memorial Scholarship Recipient
Peoria Notre Dame High School senior Olivia Munson, who devotes herself to numerous noble causes despite an ambitious academic and athletic schedule, won the 2022 Breslin Scholarship that provides $7,500 toward her college tuition for her freshman year. She will attend Xavier in the fall.
“Through loss I choose to bring life to everyone I meet,” Munson wrote. “Empathy and caring are strong parts of my character. I love helping others and excited about my future as a nurse.”
