UVA Men’s Soccer team welcomes newest member
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The UVA Men’s Soccer team is welcoming a new player, 12-year-old Jaxon Forgrave.
Jaxon is part of Team IMPACT, an organization that matches children facing serious illness and disability with college sports teams.
“He’s a good reminder of that resilience. He’s a positive, energetic kid that’s going through a lot of stuff, and our guys can see that and I think we’re all better for it,” Coach George Gelvonatch said.
Friday’s signing officially made Jaxon a Cavalier.
