SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Le Moyne College men's
soccer head coach Tom Bonus welcomed the
newest addition to the team during an alumni game halftime ceremony
on Saturday, April 26. Bonus introduced James
Alden to the team, alumni and crowd.
Coach Bonus presented James with his official team jersey and a warm-up jacket. After the presentation, James provided the opening kick-off for the second half of the alumni game.
A five-year old from Liverpool, James is involved with Team IMPACT, a non-profit program that matches up children facing life-threatening illnesses. Core to their model is harnessing the power of teamwork by matching these courageous kids with college athletic teams. Team IMPACT children are drafted onto local college athletic teams and, to the greatest extent possible, become an official member of the team for the duration of their treatment and beyond.
James is joining the Dolphins during their spring season and off-season program, preparing for the 2014 season.
