CHARLOTTE,  N.C. -  It's one of Wilson's favorite sports..futbol...better known to most Americans as soccer.  He was with some of the players from the Charlotte United Futbol Club at Hellenic Park previewing events that are part of the Julian Brown Memorial Cup.  Julian Brown, a member of the Charlotte United Futbol Club, was killed in a bus accident in France when he was there for a soccer match. To not only honor Julian, but to help other student athletes,  the Julian Brown Memorial Fund was formed.  As an event for the fund,  the Julian Brown Memorial Cup is in its 9th year and continues to grow larger each year.  Over 300 teams from across the southeast will be coming in for the tournament.

Wilson talked with some of the kids with the Charlotte United who taught him the rules of "hotel tag."
