The San Antonio area would like to spotlight all the athletes that participated in Opening Ceremonies at the Scorpions Soccer Game on August 19 at Hero’s Stadium. More than 60 SOTX athletes helped bring in the American Flag as Scott Mena gave an outstanding performance of the National Anthem. NEYSO Special Olympics athletes showed off their soccer talents during a demo at half time. Thank you all for teaming up with the Scorpions and making this event a great success!
