Adopt Lehigh Valley Kids: Cash

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - On the court and in the game of life you need teammates to succeed.

On Friday, some Lehigh University athletes became part of team Cash, challenging the 14-year-old to a game of knockout -- that Cash won.

Cash is one of more than 2,000 Pennsylvania kids in foster care looking to score with a forever family.

"He's very shy at first but he takes a little bit and then he starts warming up. He's very good at school. He was just named student of the month and he's getting all A's and B's right now," his case worker Julie Brennan said.

Lehigh may be a future fit.

Lacrosse player Kellie Gough and basketball point guard Jordan Cohen led Cash on an Athletic Facility tour Friday, with Cohen playfully asking the teen if he's seen the Lehigh team in action.

"I don't really watch college basketball, but since I've seen all this I'll start watching," Cash said.

"What is your favorite subject?" 69 News Reporter Bo Koltnow asked the teen.

"Math," he said. "I like doing algebra and fractions, they are a little harder."

Before leaving Cash was presented with a Lehigh University T-shirt. Perhaps it's an incentive to one day take flight and become a Mountain Hawk.

"You could be an engineer and come here," Gough said.

However, Cash would like to catch on with family first.  For more information on Cash or any other of our Adopt Lehigh Valley kids, head to our website.
