My name is Isaac Flores, and I was born in San Diego, California to my Mom from Maine and my Dad from Peru. I grew up in Wilmington, Delaware, and I made the choice to leave home at 13 to pursue my soccer dream by joining St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, New Jersey. This decision did not come without sacrifice as I had to leave my friends and family and other teams I played with including Delaware Rush Select, Next Gen USA, and the Philadelphia Union Juniors Select. However, it took my soccer to the next level and made me more independent. By living with 60+ students from various states and countries, I've learned to appreciate and value differences, communicate with different languages, manage my time wisely, and to stay motivated and focused toward my goals.
For my Sophomore year, I decided to step up and play for Cedar Stars Academy Monmouth Development Academy. I also attend the Scholars Athletes Leadership Academy in Bridgewater, New Jersey. This provides the perfect combination of soccer and leadership training to help me excel on and off the field. I currently play Attacking or Defending Midfielder, but I'm capable and open to playing other positions. I hope to study sports medicine to help me improve my game and then help others maximize their potential. Thank you for your consideration.
