Westmont College’s Gustavo Hernandez has been a stellar central defender for the team as he rounds out his three-year collegiate career.
In Gustavo’s first season at Westmont he had an instant impact on his team with 17 starts. He recorded his first collegiate assist as a Warrior against nationally ranked Fresno Pacific. In his Sophmore campaign, he followed up right where he left off, starting 13 games and scoring one goal against Cal State San Marcos. For his efforts he was named Golden State Athletic Conference Defensive performer.
Gustavo has started all 10 games in his senior year (2012), leading the team in minutes played. The warriors are currently 5-6-1 and are making efforts to push themselves into the post season with just three games remaining. We wish Gustavo and Westmont best of luck in the remainder of the 2012 campaign.
At the Santa Barbara Soccer Club level Gustavo was an integral part of a very successful team. At Dos Pueblos High School Gustavo was a four-year all-league selection, MVP as a senior, and a member of the National Honor Society.
Congratulations to Gustavo on his successes and recognition as Santa Barbara Soccer Club Alumni College Spotlight Player of the week.
