San Antonio, Texas. – Jonathan (Gordinho) Rexroat, a three year varsity player and a 2013 graduate of Johnson High School., will head to Mexico for tryouts with professional teams, UNAM Pumas, and Club Leon. Leon is currently the Mexican league champions of the Jornada Primera of Clausura 2014.
In November of 2013 two pro Mexican scouts were in San Antonio and saw Rexroat playing with his semipro team at Star Soccer Complex. The scouts were impressed with his talents and invited him to Mexico and tryout with their respective reserve pro teams. A native of Santa Monica, Calif., Rexroat, is the first Johnson player ever to be invited for a professional soccer tryout abroad.
“I am so excited and happy to be given this opportunity and to show my talents out there,\” said Rexroat. “This is unbelievable. I have been dreaming about this since I was a kid and now my dream is starting to happen.”
In addition to playing for the Johnson Jaguars varsity soccer team, Rexroat also played club ball at Valley Boys Soccer Club (CA), Dallas Texans and CESA U18 US Developmental Academy Team (SA). At the start of his 2013 high school senior year, Rexroat started playing for a semi pro team in San Antonio Texas, called Corinthians F.C.
Corinthians F.C., competed in the SASA Adult Premiere league and is also the reserve developmental squad for the NASL San Antonio Scorpions. The Corinthians have recently announced at a press conference their move to the NPSL.
Rexroat reports to Mexico end of February. We wish the Johnson Alumni much luck and great success! GO JAGUARS!
