ALonso DEl Mundo

My name is Alonzo Del Mundo I’m a Richmond sol alumni and I began playing for Richmond Sol Cobras when I was 10. I really enjoyed the coaching staff and the players I had the chance to play with, I became really close with all my teammates and although I don’t still play for Cobras anymore I still talk and hangout with those group of friends because we had a strong connection. Going into tournaments, games, and practices we saw each other grow and to this day we joke around about how we use to be. One thing I will always remember will be the practices we had, they were effective but also fun at the same time. Thanks to Richmond Sol and San Jose Earthquakes I’ve been able to further my education by going to UC Berkeley but also gain a scholarship to play there as well. UC Berkeley is a Division 1 college playing in the Pac-12 conference this includes playing against schools like Stanford, UCLA, UC Santa Barbara.

Jesus Roberto Felix

My name is Jesus Roberto Felix, but I simply go as Beto Felix. I have been with the Richmond Sol since 2006. I first started off playing with the recreational AYSO team and then later transitioned to the competitive Cobras 98 team. My entire soccer life with Richmond Sol has been very positive. Over the years, Richmond Sol taught almost everything I know about the sport, but it has taught me even more important lessons on commitment, responsibility, and character, which I implement into my everyday life. Without a doubt, playing soccer for so many years has filled my mind with unforgettable memories, but the one I will forget was when a couple of players from the league were selected to be Ball Boys for a SJ Earthquakes v Chicago Fire game in San Jose. This was a great memory because we were able to interact with professional players and have a big responsibility through that game. What made it even more memorable was that my shoes were autographed by Mexican legend, Cuauhtémoc Blanco. I am privileged to be attending UC Berkeley on an academic scholarship. I have many people and entities to thank for helping me getting in to UC Berkeley, Richmond Sol being one of them because they instilled positive character traits in me that I have used until now and hope to continue using later in life.
