The third annual Kuykenstrong College Cup kicks off Friday, August 26, at 4:30pm at Reeves Field in Washington, DC between American and George Mason.
This is the 16th Annual D.C. College Cup, and the third with Kuykenstrong, in honor of former American University men’s soccer standout and assistant coach Shawn Kuykendall.
“Naming the Kuykenstrong D.C. College Cup after Shawn is a small way of recognizing ‘my hero’ Shawn Kuykendall,” said AU head coach Todd West. “One of Shawn’s last requests was to raise money and awareness for cancer patients, but specifically kids with cancer. He wanted us to do everything we can to help families and kids suffering through the debilitating effects of cancer.”
