ESPN’s investigative show “E:60″ will air a segment at 6 p.m. Tuesday called “Pat’s Story” about the late Pat Grange, an Albuquerque native and a soccer player at UNM.

Grange’s parents, Mike and Michele Grange, spread the news via email late Friday night.

“Pat would be so very honored to be on ESPN!!! :-) And – once again, he is helping to spread awareness about both ALS and Head Trauma. We feel that this is his legacy. We are pleased that two years after his passing, he is still making a difference in the world,” the message read.

Grange, who also played for Albuquerque High, died in April 2012 at age 29 of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

The New York Times and CNN reported in February that Grange is the first named case of the degenerative brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy to be diagnosed in a soccer player.
