Lewiston High School Soccer Team To Be Featured On HBO’s ‘Real Sports’
National television journalist Soledad O'Brien and a crew from HBO have been in Maine and will be featuring the Lewiston High School soccer team on an episode of HBO's 'Real Sports'.
It will feature the decades old rivalry with Edward Little High School and the amazing goals scored in the rivalry both on and off the field.
The show will highlight its positive approach to integrating immigrant kids into the school system. It's one of the most racially diverse sports teams in the state.
O'Brien told WCSH television, 'It's been really fun to chat with the coach and the coaches and people in town who really love their team and love their community, as a reporter, I've always been interested in diversity.' 'But not just diversity for diversity's sake, but how it's working in a community.'
