The Lewiston Blue Devils soccer team and long time coach Mike McGraw were featured on a segment of 'The Today Show' Tuesday morning, highlighting how cultural differences were set aside to build a winning team.

The arrival of Somalian immigrants nearly 20 years ago brought some tension to the City of Lewiston, but Coach McGraw didn't let that stop him from bringing the two cultures together to create a championship soccer team.

 

Their story is told in the new book "One Goal: A Coach, a Team, and the Game That Brought a Divided Town Together" which is available now.
