  • Valley Players Playing Semi Pro or Pro

    I was asked this question and I really didn't have any answer. How many Valley players and who has signed semi pro or pro contracts?

    I know Alan Cortinas from Porter High School signed with Tigres UANL in 2014. I believe about 2 years ago a player was drafted in the MLS superdraft. Other than that, I don't know.

    The Valley's high school success has opened the doors for many kids to get scholarships at colleges and universities. In my opinion, that is the biggest success story of valley high school soccer.

    Can someone share information on this?
