"We're not just a team; we're a second family. Our spirit is not defined by wins and losses alone. This team of young boys came together five seasons ago through a love of soccer and ended up being a support system for each other. We're a family both on and off the field," said Head Coach Gennaro Lombardi.
The team has been reaching out to the community encouraging people to vote for them. If named the BMO Team of the Week 2012 Champion, the KNSC Boys will give the $5,000 donation to Giuliano's Journey, a foundation dedicated to raising money for the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
