The SYA Community lost a friend and former member when Adam Patrick Seymour collapsed while participating in a pre-season training run with the Lynchburg College soccer team on August 19, 2010. Adam died on August 22, 2010 as a result of the cardiac arrest he suffered during his collapse on the 19th. A former “Character Counts Award” recipient, SYA travel soccer player, SYA referee and SYA boy’s recreational assistant coach/trainer, Adam maintained close ties and friendships with the SYA Copperhead players, Coach Williams and Coach Windt until his untimely passing.
Adam was many things to many people. His leadership and tenacious defensive play endeared him to his teammates. The engaging Adam smile, cheerfulness and innate good spirit brought joy and happiness to his family and friends. An intense hard working young man Adam perfected an ability to make people laugh and was always willing to reach out and help others. Adam touched many lives in his eighteen years and will continue to be sorely missed by his family and friends.
