Wishing Star Visit

Brandon Robo was a special guest at yesterday’s training session at the HDC, which was closed to all others visitors and media. Brandon is a junior in high school in Washington where he also plays soccer. Through the Wishing Star Foundation, Brandon, who suffers from severe type I diabetes, came to practice with his family (he’s had to wait two years because his dad was stationed in Iraq and Brandon wanted him to be there) and was invited down to the field to meet the players. Landon Donovan also presented Brandon a game ball, which he had signed, and a jersey with the #10 and his last name on the back. Today Brandon's family will be at the game where they’ll hopefully see a U.S. victory!
