As a Christian-based company, the Ropella Team is always looking for opportunities to give back to the community. Patrick Ropella, CEO of the Ropella Group, decided to be generally charitable by sponsoring the U12 Knights soccer team through the Gospel Projects Youth Athletic Club (YAC) here in Milton. The Gospel Projects YAC is a Christian organization that receives no local, state, or government financial aid and relies on sponsorships from local businesses.
Throughout the 20-game season, the U12 Knights displayed good sportsmanship and discipline and fought hard to win the title. Mr. Ropella was not the only member of the Ropella Team that decided that they wanted to be apart of the Knights soccer season; James Raffield stepped in as the team’s Head Coach and Scott Schmieder stepped in as one of the two Assistant Coaches. Mr. Ropella and the boys and girls of the U12 Knights excitedly look forward to the next time they are able to work together as a team.
