Alex Chavez has committed to play soccer at the University of La Verne. The Friars' midfielder shared, "I chose La Verne because of the great business program it offers and the chance to play collegiate soccer. I specifically chose to play for this program because I believe it's a strong program. Plus, I really liked Coach Persson's approach to the program, and how he treats it like a family."
A four-year member of the Servite soccer program, Chavez played midfield for the Friars this season helping lead the team to their sixth consecutive Trinity League title.
Coach Jon Spencer shared, "We are excited to see Alex Chavez commit to the University of La Verne. Alex has been one of those players in our program who has committed his best effort to improve his game during his time at Servite. He has a great knack for scoring or creating goals and continues to want to learn and develop into the best player he can be. Alex has shown great character as a member of our program. His patience, determination and hard work are all paying off. We look forward to seeing him continue to be a Faith-Filled Leader in college. Congratulations Alex! You have earned it!"
Chavez, who plans to study Business Administration at La Verne, is also involved in JSA, choir and the SIGN club at Servite and volunteers as a youth soccer referee in his free time.
Chavez is the third Friar from the Class of 2019 to make a commitment to play collegiate soccer joining Chad Sinclair (Biola) and Brett Lux (Concordia).
Chavez would like to thank everyone who helped him get to where he is today saying, "Thank you to my family for all the support and to the coaches for their motivation and belief in me. I truly appreciate it!"
Servite congratulates Alex on this accomplishment and wishes him the best of luck as he finishes his high school soccer career and moves on to compete for the University of La Verne!
