Last Updated on Monday, 02 April 2012 09:50
So Cal Rush product Pedrito Zequeida has been in Cancún, Mexico training with Atlante from the Mexican First Division League. He is under the supervision of Jorge Campos (former Mexican National Team GK - pictured), and making good progress along the ranks as he looks to secure a spot with the first team. Pedrito played this past season under Boys Director of Coaching Lucas Kim with the B93 U19 team in the Top Flight of the new SCDSL. He was a crucial member and key component to the very successful B93 team that won State Cup, Regionals, and placed Finalists at Nationals in Murfreesboro, TN back in 2010; as well as the State Cup Finalists spot in 2011. Given his experience and talent, it was easy for coach Lucas to assign Pedrito as the Club's GK Trainer this past year.
Here are some words from Pedrito:
"Right now it seems like I've taken the starter's spot, I was told by the TD this Saturday that he wanted me from his scouting , and I play a scrimmage Thursday, I'll be starting in the Fuerzas Basicas of Acapulco. We train every day 3 hours a day, well I train 4 hours, goalkeepers have to be there an hour before for personal training. We are getting our stadium built, we have one very small facility right now. I train at the Jorge Campos soccer fields here across the street from the beach. In August the first divison team for Mexican Soccer League will be getting their players so I'm trying really hard to get a spot on the team and hopefully be the goalkeeper that has the 1 on his back =)"
From the Rush Family we wish Pedrito the best of luck!
