Yakima native Dale Scully met his wife Karen while attending school in New Jersey. Their eldest son, Jacob, was born in New York City. That said, the Scullys have planted their children's sports roots deeply in the Pacific Northwest, despite having lived and raised their family (daughter Ellie and other son Andrew) in Ellensburg, Paterson, N.J., Fort Pierce, Fla., Toccoa Falls, Ga., -- even UGANDA -- and currently residing in Storm Lake, Iowa!

Jacob is a talented soccer player and LOVES the Seattle Sounders FC. So much so, he recently entered the club's contest to design their 2018 Alliance Member scarf. He has made the cut to the final round of five designs!

Being as he is the only person to use his own artistic ability without the aid of computer graphics, I think he's worth a vote. Alas -- voting is only open to Sounders FC season ticket holders. If you know any, pass this link along and encourage them to lobby for "Scarf #2: The Emerald City".
