Junior Garcia joined the La Roca FC coaching staff in 2020 to coach two La Roca North boys teams, U7 and U8.
Born in Sacramento, CA, and raised in Ogden, Junior’s given name is Odilon, but we’re glad we can just call him Junior! He started playing AYSO soccer at age 7, progressed up through the club ranks, played for Ben Lomond High School, then played for Eastern New Mexico University and West Texas A&M University. After college, he played semi-pro and pro indoor soccer before joining the women’s soccer coaching staff at University of Texas Permian Basin. He also coached FC Dallas youth teams.
Besides soccer, Junior likes to mountain bike, hike, and hang out with his family.
