ABOUT THE HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP

Coach Frank always did what he could to give those with financial hardships a chance for them to pursue their dreams. The Coach Frank Ortega Foundation will be choosing one male and one female student athlete each school year to grant them with a scholarship to use towards furthering their education, whether it be college, technical school or military. These scholarships will give that opportunity to the next generation of student athletes.
