Mentor2Move Athletes: Lucas D’Angelo and Ben Pollock
“You learn more from your failures than your successes.”
Ben has been involved in Sharon Soccer for three years, and he is a sophomore at Sharon High School. Soccer has allowed Ben to make friends outside of his circle and let him put his teamwork skills to work. Ben has also been involved in the Sharon Robotics Program for 5 years, and he participates in a FIRST Robotics community team that is based in Sharon, PA.
“If these achievements have taught me anything, it is to always look forward to the future when times become difficult, because life will always get better with hard work.”

He began by joining the FLL Tiger Techs Robotics team in 5th grade and worked with them until he was in the 9th grade.
