A senior soccer player at Riverbank High School participated in a ceremony last week, signing his Letter of Intent to accept a four-year scholarship to a Division III college in the Midwest.

The signing by Gonzalo Luna took place in the Fauria Gym on the RHS campus, at noontime on Friday, April 21. It was scheduled so that his Bruin varsity soccer teammates, as well as the JV team members, could be present for the occasion.

Luna signed the document, confirming his intent to attend University of Northwestern in Saint Paul, Minnesota, beginning next year. His father, also Gonzalo, and his mother Angelica, were present, as were his coaches, and other family members.

Gonzalo’s brother, Javier, is the RHS JV boys soccer coach, and Rigo Garcia is the assistant coach. Boys varsity coach Juan Harvey said that Gonzalo will receive a scholarship, at 85 percent, to continue playing soccer for the University of Northwestern Eagles for the four years of his college career.
