Staples Soccer: South Of The Border
Staples soccer uniforms get plenty of use. The varsity wears them for 3 years; then they’re handed down for 3 more to the reserves and freshmen.
After that, they’re given away — to ballboys, as souvenirs, whatever.
Two sets found even better use. And they found them far, far from Westport.
Staples custodian Elsie Calderon is a big soccer fan. Her son Jose played at Brien McMahon.
Every year, Elsie collects used sports equipment. She sends it to family and friends in her native Costa Rica.
Staples soccer was happy to contribute old home and away jerseys. They’re now worn proudly by youth teams in Central America.
And — in a stroke of luck — the name of the town Elsie’s from begins with “S.” So the letter on the front fits perfectly.
