Biography

FINS FACT
The son of a military father, Roberto grew up playing soccer in Panama and did not start playing football until his junior year at Oceanside (Calif.) High School. Life changed for Roberto after he moved to Oceanside and was stopped by Head Coach John Carroll who told him his physical ability could be used on a different kind of football field. “Little by little, I started falling in love with football,” Roberto said. “I realized it was fun and something I could see myself doing. I love the work ethic, the team effort and the bonding. I love everything about the sport. It's an art in itself.”
