Players, technical staff and coaching staff in both the United Soccer League (USL) Championship and USL League One voted Aaron Fink of Louisville City FC, the 2022 Groundskeeper of the Year, presented by Brandt.

Fink and one of his staff members will receive a trip to the 2023 Sports Field Managers Association (SFMA) Conference courtesy of Brandt, Jan. 16-19 in Salt Lake City.

“A lot of times, we don’t get recognized for what we do unless we’re the ones screwing up, so I think it’s an awesome opportunity for our team to get acknowledged for hard work,” added Fink. “When I told the guys about this, I thought back to two times this year they really earned it. In the first game of the year, we were shoveling snow off the field. Then in mid-July, we had the USL Summer Showcase here when it was 100 degrees out. This is a group award, in my opinion. There’s not one person who won that award.”

Fink leads a local ASM Global groundskeeping staff, including three other full-timers: Darrell Clark, assistant groundskeeper, Matt Skidmore, head groundskeeper, and J.R. Williams, assistant groundskeeper. The grounds team had two 2022 interns, Nolan Dumstorf and Michael Netherton.
