A.J. Geaslen helps challenged children
Tuesday, June 5, 2012
A.J. Geaslen is the best brother a child with a mental or a physical disability could ever have.
For the past three years, the 13-year-old from Camas has dedicated his time and effort to help athletes with special needs excel on the soccer field and the baseball diamond. He has been a buddy to the Camas-Washougal Kickers TOPSoccer team and has also volunteered in the Lacamas Little League's Challenger program.
Camas-Washougal Soccer Club TOPSoccer Coordinator Tammie Naffziger nominated Geaslen for the 2012 Washington Youth Soccer Association's TOPSoccer Buddy of the Year award. Included were letters from Kickers' head coach Greg Bost and Liberty Middle School language arts teacher David Kilpatrick.
