Eagle in Brazil

Alejandro Bedoya '08

Alejandro Bedoya ’08

One member of the US soccer team competing in this year’s World Cup in Brazil is an Eagle! And a Jersey guy.

Alejandro Bedayo ’08 played his junior and senior¬†seasons for BC, after transferring from Fairleigh Dickinson. Both years at BC, he was all-America and a semifinalist for the Mac Herman award as the nation’s best male college soccer player. He graduated from CSOM.

Born in Englewood, N.J., Alejandro¬†plays for Nantes in the French professional league. His profile for the U.S. men’s national team reports that, “as a huge believer in giving back to the community,”¬†Alejandro volunteers as an English tutor in Nantes. Sounds like an Eagle.
