In todays's Saipan Tribune - Paire's U18 Colin Fruit is featured as the NMIFA Youth Player of the Week. There is a nice quote from Coach Steve KcKagan: “I have been lucky enough to coach Colin for 4 years now at the U18 level. His constant level of effort and dedication to the game have made him one of the most observant and tactical players I have ever coached. His cool nerves have really helped with the leadership on the team and he has a solid finish on penalties. These attributes have also made Colin one of the best referees on island and have earned him trips to train for refereeing at the highest level as a representative of NMIFA. These qualities also lead Paire FC to name Colin on as our director of referees this year and he sets our youth referee schedules and managse all correspondence and problem solving for us week to week. Colin was also the first youth player to take an active role as referee in higher division games, which he found out pays pretty well. I credit his success for the large youth movement we now see with our young referees. We will be losing Colin to college this winter and though Paire FC will miss his contributions as a player and as a referee greatly, we wish him all the best and know that he will continue his love of the beautiful game.”
