If anyone has a chance to pick up a copy of today's Riverside Press-Enterprise we strongly suggest that they do so that they can read all about Galaxy goalkeeper Charles Alamo. As most of you already know, Alamo has had to undergo not one but two surgeries to repair a torn ACL in his left knee. He first suffered the injury in a preseason friendly against Houston in Hawaii in February, a game that the Galaxy won 4-0. After rehabbing and getting back into the team, Alamo tore his ACL again, this time in a Reserve Division game against San Jose on August 3.
Jim Alexander from the Press-Enterprise caught up with Alamo to talk about his road to recovery, his desire to get back onto the field and the mental fortitude that is required to go through this process all over again.
