Soccer Without Borders
Former Lord Jeff Allie Horwitz ’12 recently began a year-long internship in Granada, Nicaragua with Soccer Without Borders, a non-profit organization that uses soccer as a vehicle for positive change. Helping to provide underserved communities with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion and personal success, Horwitz hopes to empower local youth through a shared love of the world’s most popular sport.
A two-time All-NESCAC honoree, Horwitz wrapped up her career as one of the most decorated goalkeepers in program history, posting a 50-13-4 overall record with 19 shutouts. Logging 5780:30 minutes in net over the course of four seasons, she finished with an impressive 0.72 goals-against average and 0.857 save percentage.
For an inside look into her experiences in Nicaragua, be sure to follow her blog, which will be updated through the duration of her internship.
