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.
We want to say thank you to everyone that has submitted an application. Our family is in the process of reviewing the applications and will have an update for you all soon. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for the most up-to-date information.
