No one is immune to the charms of the Final Five's youngest member
No one is immune to the charms of the Final Five.
Just ask Laurie Hernandez‘s unlikely fan club – a group of preteen boys at soccer camp.
On Friday, soccer coach Josh Aultice posted a video of a group of young soccer players celebrating the 16-year-old’s gold medal-winning team performance with a declaration of love, a few cups of cold water and a “Laurie!” chant.
” @lzhernandez02 you have a fan group at soccer camp,” he wrote along with the video.
Hernandez responded by calling the video ” the CUTEST thing!”
The youngest member of the U.S. women’s gymnastics team quickly became a fan favorite for her jaw-dropping skills on the balance beam, expressive face (she’s been dubbed the human emoji) and her proud representation of her Latina roots.
