Santa Barbara Soccer Club would like to congratulate Juan Pablo and his Family on this great achievment.
Coach Rudy Ybarra, BU13 White Head Coach, had this say in regard to Juan Pablo:
His commitment at training and matches are evidence that Juan Pablo is developing into a complete soccer player. His abilities on both sides of the ball are what make him a solid player at this current time. Juan Pablo is playing at Left back for our BU13 White Team and he is defending very well. His ability to make attacking runs from his left back position reminds me of Roberto Carlos, a stand out player for Brazil and Real Madrid in his playing days. To add Juan Pablo has developed into a goal scoring threat this season with his strong and accurate shooting ability, the service he provides from his overlapping attacking runs have created many scoring chances for his team. It is a pleasure to coach this young player and I look forward to being part of his future development as a player and person.
It is nice to see that (ODP) Olympic Development Program Scouts and Coaches have selected Juan Pablo Alvarez to part of this Great Program.
