Ray Vaiza of the Socorro High School football will be spending this Christmas about 2,000 miles away from home.
But Ray Vaiza won’t be sipping egg nog and singing carols in some far off destination. Instead, the junior defensive back for the Warriors was invited to participate in the National Underclassmen Football Combine All-World Classic in Charleston, S.C.
He and his father, Ray Vaiza Jr., will depart for South Carolina on Dec. 25, and plan to spend a week there.
However, the combine does not pay for travel expenses such as airfare lodging. Vaiza and his family are hosting a dinner on Saturday, Dec. 18, to raise money for the trip. For more information about the time and place of the dinner, call 575-418-0156.
