‘Scarves Up’ soccer tradition that in this case was done in honor of fallen teammate and friend Taylor Daniels. The scarves were specially made in tribute to Taylor and are inscribed with his name and jersey number and the saying ‘Forever a Falcon’. They were given to Taylor’s mother by Coach Fuss and to the rest of Taylor’s extended family by the players who then raised them over their heads in the ‘Scarves Up’ pregame tradition for a moment of silence to honor Taylor’s memory.

Before Wednesday’s soccer match against Sultan, the South Whidbey High School Falcons paid tribute to late teammate Taylor Daniels. Daniels, 17, was killed in a motor vehicle accident in July 2020. The scarves were specially made as a tribute to Daniels and inscribed with his name and jersey number as well as the saying, “Forever a Falcon.” The scarves were given to Daniels’ mother and his extended family by soccer coach Richard Fuss and the players, who then raised them over their heads in the “Scarves Up” pregame tradition and a moment of silence in Daniels’ memory.
