The echoes of Dave DeCourval's voice still carry. Inspirational, motivational, ever-so loud and oh-so clear. So the girls on the Bad Axe, Michigan, soccer team are making darn sure they play with DeCourval's passion, pride and purpose every time they step on the field — even though they are stepping on the field without him.

Some college athletes receive partial or full scholarships to participate in college athletics. Non-scholarship athletes are largely in the same boat as students who are not fortunate enough to obtain need-based relief or a scholarship based on merit.
