Ben Root ’12 Kicks It At Gillette Stadium

Ben Root ’12 — who went on to play soccer at Worcester Polytechnic Institute — is still in the game.

Last weekend, he joined his sister Megan and Jessie Ambrose (both former Staples Girls Soccer players), and friends Mike Ljungberg and Nick Yu (soccer fans who did not play for the Wreckers), on a team in the America Scores Boston tournament.

Root’s team won the entire 40-team event. The finals were held at Gillette Stadium.

The tourney raised $350,000 for America Scores Boston. The organization supports 1,400 children with an after-school program that combines reading, poetry, community and service.

Congratulations to Ben and his teammates!
