South Meck soccer team wearing No. 20 in honor of baseball coach Jon Tuscan

The South Mecklenburg girls' soccer team will wear the number 20 on its jerseys tonight during its game against Myers Park in honor of Sabre baseball coach Jon Tuscan.

Tuscan, 29, was recently diagnosed with testicular cancer. No. 20 is his baseball jersey number.

"He is a great man, teacher, coach and friend," said South Meck head girls' soccer coach Eric White in an email. "He means a lot to our school and Athletic Program and we as a team have decided to honor him by wearing his number on our jerseys tonight. He is a very young man and has a difficult fight in front of him, and we as a school and program support him."
