signing of 12-year old Alex Sherman to a letter of intent.
"We are very excited to have Alex join our team," said Pioneers head coach Erik Billinger. "Alex has proven to be a fighter and his determination and winning attitude will certainly benefit our program. The guys are very happy to learn from Alex and in turn we hope to teach Alex a few things as well this season."
Alex has been fighting Burkitt's Lymphoma since 2011, a type of cancer that begins in the body's immune cells. Upon being diagnosed, he underwent five months of intensive chemotherapy. His cancer is in remission and he currently gets scans, blood work and various tests to check his heart, lung and kidney functions.
