Neighbors in Hershey still remember walking into the Pulisic house and seeing a 5-year-old boy engrossed in a soccer game on television. This was a regular thing. An hour later, they'd look over - still watching. Even Christian Pulisic's parents knew this was unusual. "You don't see a kid watching a full soccer game," Kelley Pulisic said, remembering how her little guy, not yet on a team himself, would point out an offsides play, as if he'd been studying the game for decades.

Thomas Dickson III, 65, of Haddonfield, who loved and coached Haddonfield soccer, died Sunday, Feb. 28, from Lou Gehrig's disease. After coaching his children in a variety of youth sports, Mr. Dickson, known as "Chip," became freshman soccer coach at Haddonfield Memorial High School in 2002. Even after he was diagnosed with ALS, he continued as a varsity assistant, eventually showing up in a wheelchair for practices and games. By that point, the lessons he taught were off the field as well as on. "I can't imagine going through what he had to go through with more grace," said Haddonfield varsity soccer coach Ryan Nixon.
