It makes us proud to say the Washington Premier Boys 99 White team is one of ours as they showed class and maturity on a recent road trip. They met a young boy who happened to be the Hotel Managers son and made him smile for the first since his father had passed away just a couple of weeks earlier.
Soccer is a beautiful thing, but when life steps in and love and kindness are exalted above the game it’s even more beautiful than ever!! Joey’s soccer team had a game in Pasco today, and we all stayed at a hotel last night. The hotel manager was there with her 10 year old son Orion and he was so enamored with the older boys and their “championship” game (we were playing for 1st place today in league). So the boys hung out with him and game him a game ball they all had signed! His mother was very moved and said it was the first time she had seen him smile in a month because his dad died on Nov. 18th. The team was so kind to this sweet boy and went above and beyond to love another kid in need! He came to the game today and we won 4-0. The team was very moved by it all and I’m sure Orion will never forget that beautiful act of kindness! I LOVE our team!!
Tear jerker moment.
The manager of this hotel has her young son here. His father (her husband) just died a week ago. Turns out he loves soccer but never played. He asked one of the mom’s if he could have an autograph from one of the players. All of the players autographed a ball and presented it to him and invited him to the game tomorrow. His mom said this is the first time he has smiled in a week.
If you get a chance to meet any of these young men be sure to let them know how proud you are to know they represent Pierce County Soccer Association.
