My name is Yahya Alasad. I am a 39-year-old Syrian man from East Ghouta near Damascus. In Syria, I played 16 years of professional soccer for the Al-Wahda Sports Club. My dream was to become a professional soccer coach after being a player for so long.
Nearly 100 people gathered at Baruch College in New York City for Hoop From the Heart, a 3-on-3 charity basketball tournament to honor Jay Katz.
