When Lafayette College's men's soccer program celebrates its 100th anniversary Saturday, it will be more than a get-together of old-timers, more than a pre-game ceremony and a few speeches, more than a non-league game against Quinnipiac.
It will even be more than a gathering of friends.
"It's like a family reunion," said Paulo Coelho, a 2003 Lafayette graduate who played midfield on two Patriot League championship teams and is currently the chair of the Friends of Men's Soccer. "We're a soccer program, but we're also a family. This is a momentous occasion for us."
The family will gather on Metzgar Fields for an alumni game (11 a.m.), a pre-game tailgate (12:30 p.m.), the game (2) and a celebration of the 100th anniversary at 4:30 p.m. at Kirby Sports Center before the 6 p.m. football game.
