  • Former South Medford soccer standouts Mitchell North and Uriel Cordoba will be putting on a benefit soccer camp from 8:30 a.m.-noon on Monday at the outback soccer field in Eagle Point.
    North (Portland Timbers) and Cordoboa (San Jose Earthquakes) have each trained at their respective Major League Soccer youth academies and competed among the elite up-and-coming soccer players. Cost of the camp is $20.
    Proceeds from the camp will go to Matt Hankey, a 19-year-old South Medford classmate who suffered a a massive brain hemorrhage and seizure in April 2012. The once competitive skateboarder remains wheelchair bound and has since battled paralysis on his left side and the ability to move just his right arm.
    Plagued by headaches and migraines since age 10, Hankey suffered a stroke after undetected bleeding in his brain caused an arteriovenous malformation to rupture. People with the congenital condition, known as AVM, are born with a tangle of blood vessels in the brain that divert blood directly from arteries to veins.
