A YONKERS SOCCER MAINSTAY: Cambria inducted into ENYSSA Hall of Fame
QUEENS, N.Y. — August Cambria might have had a late start in soccer, but that didn’t stop him from making an impact on the game, especially in Yonkers, N.Y.
He started out with the Yonkers Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation and eventually discovered youth soccer and was a big factor in starting Yonkers United, the city’s youth travel soccer program before helping adult teams by getting five turf fields built.
Cambria is registrar for the Liga de Yonkers and is a member of the Eastern District Soccer League board.
For his efforts through the years, Cambria was inducted into the Eastern New York State Soccer Association Hall of Fame at the organization’s Christmas Party and Hall of Fame dinner at Verdi’s on Sunday, Dec. 1.
