Steve Pratt was a beloved member of the Scripps Ranch community. He touched the lives of countless kids through his active involvement in youth sports during his 20+ years in Scripps Ranch. Steve passed away June 21, 2016 at age 50 just six months after being diagnosed with brain cancer. He brought a tremendous amount of energy and passion to his coaching, and influenced the lives of so many kids. He always had time for extra help after practice, or private coaching sessions. His engaging personality, quick wit, and sense of humor made him feel like a close friend to everyone he met.
We have created an endowed scholarship fund for Scripps Ranch High School student athletes. By raising $25,000, we are now able to grant scholarships annually in perpetuity to San Diego athletes who exhibit Steve’s values on and off the field We can think of no better way to ensure that Steve will always be remembered, and that there is an annual reminder of the tremendous impact that he had on our children, our community, and everyone who was honored to know him.
