    Remembering Abel Dessalegn

    ESFNA mourns the loss of a beloved player, Abel Dessalegn.

    Abel grew up with his grandparents in Ethiopia and after he finished middle school he joined his mother in the U.S. He finished high school & graduated from UMD. He was very active in the Ethiopian Student Union while he was in college. He played soccer growing up in Ethiopian and played in every school he attended as well as in ESFNA tournaments for at least 15 years representing the DC EthioStars. He was loved by his family and his friends for his positive and respectful attitude. He was always cheerful when he played soccer on the field or on the bench.

    He will be missed....May God Rest his Soul!
