Marc Small was a Lower Providence resident and played soccer throughout his youth for Methacton United Soccer Club and Methacton High School.  Marc was a Special Forces Medic Sergeant serving with the United States Army in Afghanistan.   On February 12, 2009 Marc was killed in action in service to our grateful nation. 

 

Marc became a medic with the Army’s Special Forces to care for his comrades in arms as well as some of the poorest, most oppressed people on earth.  As evidence to his intelligence, motivation and courage, Mark quickly rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant, learned the invaluable skills necessary to care for soldiers and civilians and earned the coveted “Green Beret”.   Marc had only been in Afghanistan for 3 weeks, but during that time he treated 40 patients a day and built a relationship with the local people and children.

 

To honor Marc’s memory Methacton United Soccer Club and Lower Providence Township are sponsoring the Marc Small Memorial Tournament.  This will be an annual small sided soccer tournament, that will fund two Marc Small Scholarships.  These scholarships will be awarded annually to a male and a female senior from the Methacton High School soccer teams.  The scholarships will be awarded to players who played for Methacton United Soccer Club.
