My name is Andres Lopez. I am a High School Senior from San Diego, California, class of 2022. From a young age my dream has been to play soccer professionally. I have always had a strong passion to play competitively and amongst the best athletes. My feet have been on the ball since I was very young. I started at the age of 3 in recreational soccer and moved up to AYSO, various elite clubs, eventually moving up higher to play for Albion with the U.S.S.D.A and train internationally. I have been lucky enough to travel to different countries. I represented the U.S. and trained with the Bundesliga, Westham, Chievo Verona and many more. I have been fortunate to meet lots of talented players and learn from some of the absolute best coaches. I do believe that hard work, a healthy lifestyle and the right mindset will help me reach my goal of becoming a professional. As of August 2021 I have been living my dream. I was selected to play for FC Schalke 04 in the residential academy in Geilenkirchen Germany under the Head Coach Jens Grembowietz. I will dedicate my year to becoming the strongest and most skilled player I can be, in hopes of securing a future in professional soccer. Keep an eye open for our live stream games, its going to be an exciting year.
