Red Reign and a tribute to a hero

Red Reign

The under-10 girls team commemorated fallen Navy SEAL William 'Ryan' Owens at the NASSC 2017.

Carryn Owens is one of the thousands of people who return to the North American Sand Soccer Championship every year, although the 2017 event proved a particularly poignant affair for her.

Owens’ daughter plays every year in the event with Beach FC but this year, following the passing of her husband, Navy SEAL William ‘Ryan’ Owens, she decided to coach her girl as part of the Red Reign team. Ryan was killed in January 2017, as part of a US mission in Yemen.

Wearing special commemorative jerseys, and with a determination to make their late husband and father proud, Owens and her daughter took to the sand eager to commemorate Ryan in appropriate fashion.

“Every day he’s a part of our lives. It’s about the girls this weekend but obviously we think of him every single day,” Owens explained to Beach Soccer Worldwide in Virginia Beach.
