Welcoming a winner

By Olivia Cervantes

Levi Arreola, winner of the 2012 Crossbar Challenge and native of Bellflower, Calif., joined Chivas USA today as the First Team held their first training back from New York, ahead of tomorrow’s match vs Seattle Sounders at The Home Depot Center. Accompanied by his dad and little brother, Levi was able to meet some of the Chivas USA players, including his favorite Goat, Juan Pablo Angel, Coach Fraser and Juan Agudelo. While speaking with Coach Fraser, Levi’s dad reminisced about the only goal that the former professional defender scored on Tampa Bay Mutiny on June 16, 1996 while playing with the Galaxy. With a smile on his face, Coach Fraser thanked Levi’s dad for following his career and Chivas USA. By winning the contest that was held on May 4, 16 year-old Levi took home a $5,000 college scholarship that, as of today, he is unsure of what school or major he is interested in pursuing after high school.
