Shenendehowa alum Popolizio makes NCAA final with Indiana

Popolizio (7) in his high school days at Shenendehowa
T.J. Popolizio helped lead Shenendehowa's boys soccer team to a state title in 2005. Now a forward on the Indiana Hoosiers men's soccer team, Popolizio now has a chance for national glory.
Indiana beat Creighton 1-0 Friday to earn a place in Sunday's final against Georgetown. The Hoosiers are the first No. 16 seed to advance to the final since the field expanded to 16 teams in 2003.
The final kicks off at 2 p.m. Sunday and will be televised on ESPNU.
Here's a hilarious video of T.J. speaking to a  group of elementary school students as part of the College Cup experience.
