After the sudden loss of their teammate and friend, team Fire came together to nominate Kamyar Hamidi as player of the week:
Kamyar Hamidi was a fullback on team Fire and tragically lost his life along with his father Ardalan who was an assistant coach for the team and his mother Niloo.
Like many 15 year olds, Kamyar was getting used to the growing and maturing body of a young man and was perhaps not able to play with the results that he wanted as someone who loved the game and loved to play the game. He had a hard, long kick when needed for free kicks or goal kicks, stood his ground when the other team attacked and was usually glad to be spelled off with a substitution. Like many players who don't steal the spotlight with lots of goals or dazzling moves, Kamyar was a good team mate, a good friend and a valuable member of our team.
We will miss Kam and his dad, Coach Ardy.
