Recent Amherst Regional graduate Jacob Lopez was featured briefly in an ESPN clip that ran near the end of the United States’ 2-1 win over Ghana in the World Cup Monday.
According to an email sent from Mike Giles, Lopez’ stepson, Lopez worked and saved money for two years in order to attend the World Cup in Brazil.
Giles said Lopez has tickets to six matches, including Brazil vs. Mexico at 3 p.m. Tuesday.
