The Fight to Save Coach Fofo From Deportation

Today we speak to Casa de Maryland Services Director George Escobar about the fight to save Agbegnigan Amouzou, also known as ‘Coach Fofo,’ from deportation. Coach Fofo, a native of Togo, has been a staple in both the Montgomery and Prince George County sports scene for decades and leading the fight is the aforementioned Casa de Maryland as well as clergy and community leaders.

We also have ‘Choice Words’ on Tiger’s historic victory at the Masters last weekend, and his friendship with Donald Trump. We also have ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to supporters of the MLS Vancouver Whitecaps and Major League Baseball. All this and more on this week’s show!
