2024 Board of Directors

President – Steve Hitz
Term: Jan 2023 – Dec 2024 (2 Years)
Email: steve.hitz@83united.org
Bio: I have been on the board as a member at large since 2018. Also, I have previously been on other non-profits including The Boy Scouts of America.
‘ I have been operating the tailgates and also been the grill master for the past year and I haven’t made anybody sick. It would be my honor to become the next president of 83 United.

Vice President – Krystal Grizzle
Term: Jan 2024 – Dec 2025 (2 Years)
Bio: I grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana, where the only sports teams were Shreveport Captains minor league baseball, the Dallas Cowboys, the LSU Tigers, and sometimes the Saints – back then, known as the Ain’ts. I was in Tulsa for 20 years before Scott and I watched our first soccer match, FC Tulsa at OneOK Field during the pandemic, and obviously, soccer got its hooks in me.

While arguably not the most experienced soccer fan, I have worked professionally with and around nonprofits and events for 15 years, for the last 10. Most recently I have been working in event marketing for Holberton Tulsa, though formerly I was Director of Mayfest and Director of Events and Guest Services at Ahha Tulsa. Before that, I worked in medical records. I am a graduate of Leadership Tulsa, Leadership Arts Oklahoma, and have served on several non-profit boards and committees focused on Tulsa and Education. We have two high school kids, one dog, and three cats.

As Vice President for 83 United, I hope to help steer our board and committees toward growth, both in numbers and impact on the community. I have experience forming committees and organizing volunteers. I also believe there is a place for supporter affinity groups under and in tandem with our group and I would encourage groups to celebrate both the differences and likenesses we share – after all, it’s all for FC Tulsa! The more, the merrier! I would happily serve as a liaison for subgroups with whom I share an affinity as well.
Board member since 2023
Treasurer – Scott Grizzle
Term: Jan 2024 –  Dec 2025  (2 Years)
Bio: I was born in Oklahoma City, but shortly before I turned three, I realized how much OKC sucks and moved to Tulsa. I am a detail-oriented planner, husband, father of two, huge Sci-Fi fan, gadget geek, bit of a car nerd, and lover of all things Tulsa.

My day job is a Senior IT Project Manager for a large utility company. Outside of work, I am a serial volunteer who has experience on multiple non-profit boards. I previously was the President of a nonprofit focused on planning and zoning, and am currently President of the Foundation for Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences. I also serve on the City of Tulsa’s Sales Tax Overview Committee overseeing the City of Tulsa’s major capital projects. I have also spent 15+ years with Mayfest, most recently as their Site Manager handling the setup, upkeep, and tear down of the festival site.

I have to confess that the first soccer game I ever saw was an FC Tulsa game in 2020, but since then I have become a huge fan of FC Tulsa, 83 United, Wrexham, and AFC Richmond.

As a Treasurer for 83 United, I hope to help the membership and its programs grow.

Secretary – Melissa Goforth
Term: Jan 2024 – Dec 2024  (1 Year Interim)
Bio: My love for FC Tulsa and soccer started when my partner, Joey (a huge soccer fan), and I went to our first match together in May 2021. We joined 83 United shortly after and we have been supporting FC Tulsa through this amazing supporter’s group ever since. I’ve served on many different boards and committees throughout Tulsa and have worked in the non-profit sector for 15 years. I am excited to serve on the board and to see the growth of the supporter’s group!

Member at Large – Amanda Rich
Term: Jan 2024 – Dec 2024 (1 Year)
Bio: I am a born and raised Okie who’s moved around a bit but settled in Tulsa in 2020. I’ve been involved with soccer my whole life. Everything from a player, a coach, a soccer mom, and a fan! I’ve also worked with various non-profits over the last 20 years. In 2021 I attended my first FC Tulsa match and haven’t looked back. I look forward to serving on the board this year!

Member at Large – Dillon Brown
Term: Jan 2024 – Dec 2024 (1 Year)
Bio: I’m Dillon, a lifelong soccer lover. I kicked off my soccer journey when I started playing at age three, became an inaugural season ticket holder for OKC (who?) while in college, and then followed my heart—and my wife—to Tulsa. For the past 3 years, I’ve been a proud season ticket holder and 83 United member. I’m excited for the opportunity to bring my passion to our supporter community by serving on the board!
