A deeper history
This past year and a half was potentially one of the most important for my soccer career. I started my journey in South Florida, growing up and training with a close friend of Radamel Falcao, his name is Juan Villegas. He was a goalkeeper for River Plate and taught me how to finish and get into the minds of keepers.
I grew up playing club soccer, but eventually was given the opportunity to tryout for the D.C. United Academy. I made the Academy and played there for one season before receiving an opportunity from Czech Soccer legend and former U.S.A. National Team Assistant Coach, Lubos Kubik to play in in the Czech Republic. Not only did we grow close as friends, but he allowed me the chance to play overseas first with FK Pardubice (2017) and then with Slavia Prague (2018) I played with both the Slavia U16s and U17s scoring 3 goals with 2 assists. I played against F.C. Barcelona, Hertha Berlin, FC Porto, FK Dukla Prague, Chinese U18 national team, and many more. Unfortunately I had to return home after issues with FIFA and my Visa.
I made the roster again at DC but came back to Florida for the high school. In high school I lead my team to many great wins, was the leading scorer, was put onto the All-American watch list and selected Miami Herald All County. I recently returned from Barcelona with the Region 3 South Region ODP team where I was the starting #9 on the US International Team.
Thank you for your consideration,
Paul Karch Jr.
