Gallery+Story: Championship-bound Locos visit Hughey Elementary

El Paso Locomotive FC players Monday showed several Hughey Eagles some of the signature moves that earned them a berth to the United Soccer League’s Western Conference Final.

Aaron Gomez, Memo Diaz and Moses Makinde were among the Locos playing soccer with the kids. Gomez’s son was among the second graders participating.

“It’s been fun to do these type of events for the kids,” said Diaz, a native El Pasoan. “We’ve gone to other schools and it’s always a good time with the kids.”

They plan to continue visiting EPISD schools to promote soccer.

The Locos will travel to Salt Lake City Saturday to face Real Monarchs in the Western Conference Final.

Good luck Locos!
