The Park Ridge Football Booster Club has created two college scholarships in memory of head football coach Gary Mioli who passed away suddenly at the start of the 2014 season.

Both scholarships are open to qualified graduating Park Ridge High School seniors on the football team. The Grades and Gridiron scholarship rewards academic excellence while the Wayward Son scholarship focuses on the concept of family that coach Mioli valued so much. Both scholarships will be awarded in June.

Anyone interested in contributing may send a check payable to Park Ridge Owl Boosters to P.O. Box 307, Park Ridge, NJ 07656. For more information, contact
