Senior Miguel Mendoza was recently selected to be a member on the High School Soccer All-American Games.

Mendoza will be featured in a game Dec. 2 in Orlando, Fla.

“[Being selected] makes me proud, excited, and ready to play with Florida in November.”
“They had to choose people, 150 in total,” He said. “And I was the only one selected from Nevada.”

Additionally, Mendoza represents the furthest state in the West.

“It makes me proud, I want to go out there and show what Nevada’s about,” he said. “Hopefully I play a good game over there. It motivates me to keep going, and just to keep playing soccer.

Mendoza mentioned he has a few college looks. He’s also being looked at by Walla Walla University and Evergreen State College – both in Washington – as well as Oregon Tech.

He’s holding out hope, however, that UNLV will offer him a scholarship.

“Hopefully next year, I’ll be playing college soccer,” he said. “I want to play for UNLV.”
