MSOC | Gaels Hold Shaving Fundraiser For Morro

MORAGA, Calif. - The Saint Mary's men's soccer team held a fundraiser for teammate Emmanuel "Morro" Sarabia on Wednesday afternoon on the Chapel Lawn. The Gaels fundraised over 1,000 for their teammate who is currently undergoing treatment for Leukemia.

During Community Time on campus, individuals who wanted to contribute a minimum gift of $20 could have the chance to shave a men's soccer player's head in any way they would like. The soccer players will keep their new styles for 48 hours which should turn some heads during class time.

The event drew hundreds of students and staff from Saint Mary's as they came to not only shave heads, but to support Morro and the great community that he is a part of.

Sarabia, who turned 21 in December, missed the 2010 season due to a serious knee injury suffered in a preseason game at Sonoma State. In that game at SSU, he scored twice and added an assist before a 55th minute collision with the Seawolves' goalkeeper ended his season.

After undergoing rehabilitation following ACL surgery, he returned to the field last season to start 15 of his 19 appearances. He was a key member of the Gaels' record-setting team that won the program's first-ever WCC championship and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight. He provided the game-winning assist on a long crossing pass to Jose Cabeza against San Diego that clinched the league title.
