The Jerry Yeagley Award for Exceptional Personal Service is presented annually to a college men’s or women’s soccer player (past or present) who has demonstrated exceptional personal achievement and extraordinary accomplishment that transcends normal expectation, and who is or was an example and inspiration to his/her teammates and university. 

The recipient should exhibit the qualities of sportsmanship, integrity, respect and concern for others, leadership, generosity and appreciation and should exhibit a strong work ethic and have the ability to rise above adversity.
