Exchange Students Fassbinder Finds Home Away From Home in Westby


LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW) ------------- It's a play he will always remember, German foreign exchange student Julius Fassbinder kicked his way into the hearts of the Westby community, as he made a game winning field goal to beat G-E-T last Friday.

It's a special play for Julius, not only because it was a game winner but because it will forever link him with his host brother Zach, who was the holder on the field goal, "everyone was really excited that we got the game winning kick together it was just amazing that we could do that as brothers and as a team," said host-brother Zach Shaha.

Over 4000 miles away, Julius' family was able to relive the moment, watching the highlites on the Internet, "my brother laughed about me because of my English, but my mom, I think she was proud of me that's really nice I miss them," said Fassbinder.

It's amazing ride, for a kicker and exchange student, who will always be remembered for a play he made one September night.
