Southern Alamance High School Varsity and Burlington SC Flames
By all accounts, Seth Christy was a remarkable young man, dedicated to his family, church, school and to soccer. An outstanding player, both with the Burlington SC Flames and Southern Alamance High School, he and his brother (as kids) would construct some type of crude soccer goal (with lots of duct tape!) and play mini-games in the mornings while waiting on the school bus or until the goal broke. And that doesn't count the countless games played in the church parking lot!
As a club player, Seth played up by one and sometimes two years in age. Being a larger kid helped him fit right in! As he entered high school, he played with his true age division and simply knocked other kids off the ball. But even with his size, he would always have at least one move per game that you thought he had practiced 1000 times, but it was sheer natural ability.
Seth loved to make friends, and is probably the reason a lot of his friends began playing soccer - or playing more seriously! At times there were three or four kids that would ride to the game with Seth and the family.
Off the field, Seth loved to have fun, inventing games with his friends like "Pearl Harbor" and "Four Wheeler Tag".
Seth Christy passed away on February 28, 2009 at the age of 19.
