All twelve were guided by LAGOC’s College Placement Director, Carlos Gonzales, and used the club’s College Placement Program to secure positions at their respective Universities.

LA Galaxy OC Director of Operations, Tim Woodcock, said: “We are incredibly proud of these players, and are pleased we could guide them into colleges of their choice”.
