Soccer's New Player

By Owen Teach

On Tuesday, Jan. 29, the Middlebury men’s soccer team “drafted” Dmitri Duval, a local 6 year-old from Crown Point, N.Y. suffering from juvenile dermatomyositis. After being diagnosed in August 2009, Dmitri took high doses of IV steroids, oral steroids and methotrexate (chemo medication), was discharged, and fortunately now is in remission. The men’s soccer team joined up with Team IMPACT to draft Dmitri. Dmitri loves soccer, and is happy to be a member of the Middlebury athletic community.
