Goaziou was involved in soccer for more than 25 years a coach and administrator.
"US Youth Soccer has many volunteers, coaches and administrator who have and still do give back to the game of soccer through service, and we are very excited to honor a man who spent more than 25 years of his life doing just that," said John Sutter, president of US Youth Soccer.
