Message from Head Boys Soccer Coach Cristian Mihut

Arturo was truly a leader on and off the field. Nicknamed “Turbo” due to his speed on the wings, Arturo truly lived up to his acclaim, helping us win some crucial games throughout the season. Easy-going and fun, he always was kind to the underclassmen, setting up a great example of positivity. Arturo signed a letter of intent to play at Ancilla College in the fall.


Congratulations Arturo and best of luck at Ancilla. Go Chargers!
