Sophomore goalkeeper Alex Bono juggles school work with a stellar performance as the last line of SU's defense on the soccer pitch.

Alex Bono found his love for soccer through his consistent preparation and drive to become the best goalkeeper on the field. A native of Baldwinsville, N.Y., Bono needed to immerse himself with a few years of playing sports before discovering which sport he preferred. And during the latter stage of his pre-teenage years, he found that sport to be soccer.

“It wasn’t until I was around 10 years old that I found soccer as my passion,” Bono said.
