The varsity boys soccer team has joined with seniors Emily Moran and Will Moran to collect used soccer gear for children in Africa. Items were collected at a home game against Friends Academy on Sept. 12 and in the high school throughout that week. The Falcons won that game, 1-0, and received many donations. 

Emily and Will have been spearheading this effort for the past four years for the charity Kick It to Cameroon. The boys soccer team started participating last year. 

Varsity coach Joseph Lee said his team enjoys helping others and knowing that they can share their love of soccer with children who are less fortunate. “The gear that is donated will provide hours of joy for the children that benefit from this amazing event,” he said.

Donations have come in from students, athletes, faculty and community members. Items include cleats, soccer balls, soccer socks, jerseys, shin guards, shorts and cones.
