BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Gov. Livingston senior Doug Anderson was awarded the first ever Kyle Kirst Heart and Soul Scholarship at a presentation during the Kyle Kirst Memorial Lacrosse Tournament held in Bridgewater on April 23, 2017.

Kirst was the beloved assistant lacrosse coach of the Summit Hilltoppers who passed away June 16, 2015. Kirst ran the Summit's defensive unit, a linchpin of the program's success and rise to the elite echelon of New Jersey lacrosse. A 1990 graduate of Rutgers University, Kirst played goal for the Scarlet Knights. 

The scholarship recognizes those players who clearly epitomize and illustrate the core values of Coach Kirst which include courage, valor, respect, compassion, and trust. "These core values are what coach Kirst stood for throughout his coaching life and it is these five values we believe this year's winner clearly demonstrated every time he stepped on the field," said a scholarship representative.

This award also recognizes those players that always think of the well being of their teammates, coaches, and opponents, first before themselves. Any player who receives this scholarship is seen as a leader and caring teammate  who will do anything for the betterment of his team and to protect the values of this great game.

Anderson began his lacrosse career in second grade playing for the Chiefs Lacrosse Program through eighth grade. He is a four year varsity letter winner and two year captain of the Gov. Livingston Highlander lacrosse team. 

Doug is the son of John and Leigh Anderson of Berkeley Heights.
