Dutchess County village cheers on Team USA captain in World Cup

The U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team is preparing for its next do-or-die match in the World Cup on Saturday.

As the world prepares to watch, one small village just south of the Capital Region is feeling even more excited.

Tyler Adams, 23, is from the small village of Wappingers Falls in Dutchess County. His parents still live in Wappingers.

He is a 2017 graduate of Ketcham High School, where a huge banner has been put up to cheer him on.

Learn why the principal of that school says Adams was one of the best students to ever walk the halls by watching the video of Subrina Dhammi’s story.
