Lahoud who joined the NASL’s side from his loan spell with another NASL side, New York Cosmos grabbed the Humanitarian honor just a year after he teamed up with Major League Soccer (MLS) forward Kei Kamara to launch a school in Freetown as a part of ‘Schools for Salone’- an organization with the goal of rebuilding the education system in the country.
“This school is a part of me,” Lahoud said. “It is a part of my story and will always be a part of my story. Building it has been a dream come true. I hope to continue changing many lives through the sport that I love.”
For the former New York Cosmos midfielder, the most rewarding thing for him is seeing athletes make a difference through sports.
The 30-year-old midfielder kicked off the year on loan to New York Cosmos from MLS’ Philadelphia Union, but he was acquired by the ambitious Miami FC side in a transfer before the ten-game Spring Season had concluded.
