What People Are Saying


"Carlos was very helpful in my recruiting process because not only did he encourage me to reach out to schools that I was interested in attending but he followed up with the coaches that had interest in me as a player and helped me achieve my dream of playing at a top DI school."

Kailey Smith 2017 - Current DI player at Texas

"Carlos brings the total package to coaching- not only is he an elite coach but he has guided us, provided mentorship, advice, and helped lead my daughter through her pathway playing club soccer to now signing to play DI Soccer. The leadership and knowledge Carlos passed onto Aislin was amazing and he also never hesitated to provide this guidance."

Former DI Men’s soccer Player now Soccer Dad of Aislin Streicek former Vancouver Whitecaps FC players and committed 2021 DI soccer player at University of Alabama Rolltide.

"The College Soccer Guide has exceeded our expectations in educating us and guiding us in the right direction. Coach Carlos uses his passion and knowledge of the game to build easy steps in the college process. He has assisted our family by streamlining our daughter’s future college soccer prospects. He helped create a specific plan for us after our one-on-one meetings and his understanding of our daughter’s position, skills and personality."

Soccer parent of 2025 player Hernandez

"Carlos was instrumental during the recruiting process of my oldest daughter. She began this process at a very young age and wasn’t able to have coaches reach out to her directly. Carlos would speak with the coaches and give us the information we needed to move forward.” Having Carlos that takes the time to communicate with college coaches on behalf of your athlete and relay that information to the player is invaluable during the recruiting process. "
