Some of East­side's truest alumni re­unite

For­mer team­mates, in­clud­ing cur­rent Prin­ci­pal Jeff Cher, the all-time win­ningest coach in boys and girls pro­gram his­tory re­united Satur­day for the 3rd An­nual East­side High School Alumni Soc­cer Match. Thirty-two play­ers in­clud­ing EHS grad­u­ates from as far back as 2003 to cur­rent Ea­gles and Lady Ea­gles made the trek to the pitch at Cousins Mid­dle School. Af­ter 80 min­utes of soc­cer the match was de­cided by a sin­gle goal, with one team win­ning 9-8. Cur­rent head coach Champ Young di­vided the teams up by skill level in what proved to be a pretty evenly matched con­test. The four el­der grad­u­ates, Daniel Lan­ford (2003), TJ Alexan­der (2003), Champ Young (2004) and Len­non Har­ri­son (2005) all played for the win­ning side this day. Coach/Prin­ci­pal Jeff Cher played a bit for both sides.
