The Lenny Schultz Scholarship Fund
The family and friends of Lenny Schultz are proud to announce the creation of the Lenny Schultz Memorial Scholarship Fund to further his legacy.
It is hard to describe a man like Leonard “Lenny” Anthony Schultz. For those who don’t know Lenny his devotion and commitment to those around him were hard to match. One could talk about his athletic accomplishments or awards he received throughout his lifetime, but that would not allow one to dive into who Lenny really was. His accomplishments did not define him as a person. His character did.
It is hard to put into words who he was as a person of character, but after one sits down and thinks about the true identity of Lenny, one would come to say that the best way to describe him was a Blue Collar Backyard Brawler. The Blue Collar aspect is shown by how he was never afraid to get his hands dirty and mud on in face. This is not only the physical side of Lenny, but his mental side more so. His goal was never to seek self-recognition or step on somebodies toes at the cost of others. At the end of the day, Lenny had a very soft heart who was willing to risk his own will-being for anyone else he knew. Or in fact, anyone he did not know because he did not wish to see anyone suffer. He wanted to be the one who took the burdens and the pain off anybody’s face. The second aspect of his identity was a Backyard Brawler. He was the type of kid growing up who walked the streets of North Jersey beside the hip of his brother Eddie with a football in hand, tucked high and away. The type of kid who walked his younger sister Chrissy to the bus stop. The type of kid who played pickup football games at age six with kids who were ten to fifteen years old. The type of kid who looked for contact, the type of kid who did not learn a spin move or juke because his mindset was to look for contact and embrace the mentality of hitting people. The type of kid who hid from his mother when he came back home during the summer with bruises and blood on his face from playing hard because he wanted to go out and do it again the next day. This way of thinking ran in Lenny’s blood and developed him into who he was as a man. His fearless attitude and loyalty to have his brothers or friends back in a fight that may have broken out on the Jersey backyard gridiron earned him a highly respected reputation on and off the athletic field. He may have been picked on by the older kids on the block when he was six, but by age seven those same kids would not show up the next day. Not out of fear, but out of respect. His loyalty to others is what made him a great man.
If Lenny had to give anyone advice to follow going forward in their life he would most likely put the following at the top of his list.
“When you wake up, I want you to ask yourself “What can I do today to make a positive difference in the world? What can I do today to help somebody in need? What can I do today to be the best possible servant to my God?””—- Leonard Anthony Schultz
