When given the chance, some high school students create an incredible collection of memories. Angel Garcia is one of those students. “I have been involved in the homecoming skits and this year’s senior skit,” he said. He has also played soccer at Armijo since his freshman year and outside Armijo for six years in soccer clubs.

“I chose to go into soccer because it has been my favorite sports ever since I was little,” he said. “I have participated in many tournaments, like in San Diego and Nevada.” He is considering trying out for track for his last semester.

“People should definitely get involved in sports and clubs around campus because of the special bond you can form with your teammates and peers, almost like a second family,” said Garcia. “People should come out and try out for soccer. They will not regret it…My most memorable game would have to be when my girlfriend’s family came to my game and I scored a goal to impress them.”

When he’s not acting in skits or playing on the field, Garcia likes to play video games with his friends. He said that he hopes to go to Dominican University. “I would like to continue playing soccer in college, as long as I can manage school and sports at the same time,” he said.

He said that his role models are his sisters, Yuselin (24) and Maria (19). “They graduated from Armijo and Maria is a U.S. Marine in San Diego and I am so proud of her for her bravery,” he said.
