Alex Lopez

School: Ygnacio Valley High, Grade: Senior, Sports: Soccer, Football, Volleyball, Cross Country

Interiors Panache

Lopez has made a big mark on the soccer field for the Warriors but he’s also been on Ygnacio Valley varsity cross country, volleyball and football teams. The midfielder has been a soccer team captain and all-league selection three years. Assistant coach Bijan Sadeghy says, “Alex is a four-year starter who is one of the most talented players to come through the YVHS soccer program. He represents this program very well on and off the field. But what’s been most satisfying for us coaches is how much he’s grown and matured through his four years here. He’s been a real joy to coach and I know he will go on to bigger and better things once his time is up being a Warrior.”

Lopez played a key role last winter when Ygnacio made it to the North Coast Section Division 3 and Northern California D4 championship games. His teams have only lost 19 of 79 games during his high school career. He will be attending college in the fall majoring in kinesiology or sports management and hopes to play soccer there as well.
