The inaugural 2010 Ian’s Cup (formerly Fincke Cup) launched the foundation and the energy that fuels the annual soccer match played in memory of Ian Fincke. Reagan High School won the inaugural match with a final score of Reagan HS 5 and Johnson HS 1.
Ian was a student and soccer player at Reagan High School in San Antonio, TX when he opted to use the school of choice option to attend Johnson High School when the school opened in the fall of his junior year. Ian suffered a fatal head injury from a long boarding accident in October, 2008.
Ian’s Foundation was created as a way to give back to the local community in his memory and with that an annual signature match is played against the two high schools he attended. Annual scholarships are given out in his memory to deserving student athletes as voted on by their fellow teammates. The recipient of the scholarship award was Bernardo De Alba.
