Buckley’s Bobby Manella carrying family’s soccer lineage proudly

The mornings and early afternoons at the Manella house were filled with sounds of shaking walls and the occasional broken living room item, the consequence of five athletic children who converted the family’s living room into a soccer field. Balls flew around in every direction and the doorways turned into goals. In the midst of all the bodies, the youngest sibling, Bobby, would try to outmuscle his four older brothers and sister while their mom, Andrea, looked on in amusement. She didn’t mind a...
