Rick Young has been named JSerra Catholic High School’s new head girls soccer coach, officials said today.
Coach Young comes to JSerra with more than 17 years of coaching club soccer, including the Slammers Futbol club of Newport Beach.
“His energy, knowledge of the game and ability to inspire others provide him with the tools to effectively coach today’s athlete,” said Jim Hartigan, JSerra’s athletic director. “Coach Young’s accomplishments are impressive including state, regional and national championships for various clubs, and sending more 100 players to compete at the collegiate level. The last group of student-athletes under his tutelage earned the right to continue playing soccer for such tremendous institutions such as Stanford, Texas, Notre Dame, Tennessee, South Carolina and the University of Houston.”
Coach Young’s style of play and strong passion for the game are sure to provide a solid foundation for the Lady Lions Soccer Program, Hartigan said.
