Eddie Pope's window of opportunity
Thu May 18, 2006
American soccer star Eddie Pope has come a mighty long way from the days of breaking windows at his parents' home in High Point. Forgotten are his days as a place-kicker on the football team at Southwest Guilford High School. And his four seasons with North Carolina -- where he became an All-America in soccer and started every game -- are now a distant memory. Pope, 32, is focused on his third, and likely final, appearance on the grand stage that is the World Cup.
