Sidekicks Announce Return of Goalie Juan Gamboa
(ALLEN, TEXAS) The Dallas Sidekicks have announced that goalie Juan Gamboa will return for the 2020-2021 MASL season. This will be Gamboa's fourth season with the Dallas Sidekicks. Per team and league policies, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Gamboa is an outstanding goalie who wears number one on his jersey for the Sidekicks and is appropriately the first announced signing of the Dallas Sidekicks for the 2020-2021 season. Last season he played in 17 games for the Sidekicks with 199 saves and posting a 64% save percentage. Juan is a leader both on and off the field for the Sidekicks and is also a teacher and head soccer coach at Bonham High School.
Gamboa went to James Pace High School in Brownsville and graduated in 2012 from the University of Texas at Brownsville with a degree in kinesiology. Gamboa's collegiate soccer success led to tryouts with semi-pro and pro teams. In 2012, Gamboa played for the San Antonio-based La U soccer team that won the world-class Global Beer Champions Cup. The championship match of the tournament was played at Wembley Stadium in London. During and after his college years, he also played semi-professionally for the Bravos and Grandes in the Rio Grande Valley, which led to his stint with the RGV Flash of the PASL in 2012-13. The Flash, which played its home games at Hidalgo's State Farm Arena, became Hidalgo La Fiera in 2013, and Gamboa took his game to an even higher level this past season with the PASL team as it advanced to the league's championship match. Gamboa was with the Flash when it reached the PASL semifinals one season earlier. He joined the Dallas Sidekicks in 2015 and has been the teams number one goalie ever since.
Please join the Sidekicks in welcoming back Juan Gamboa!
