The Seahorses are delighted to announce the addition of a new Assistant General Manager for their USL League II program. Brandon Gonzalez is not a new name to the PDL Seahorses. Brandon played for the Seahorses from 2006 to 2010 as well as playing for one year of PDL in Seattle, Washington. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Biola University and an M.A. in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Concordia University.
Brandon is currently Director of Athletics and Student Life at Pacifica Christian High School-Orange County. He began and oversees 17 Varsity Programs. He is also the Varsity girls’ soccer coach. Prior to Pacifica Christian, Brandon was the Associate Athletic Director and Director of Girls Soccer at The Bear Creek School in Redmond, WA. There he oversaw 23 high school sports teams and 14 middle school sports programs. While coaching at Bear Creek he led his team to three straight State Finals winning back-to-back State Championships in 2012 and 2013.
Brandon has been a faithful volunteer and fundraiser for the PDL program since returning from Washington in 2015. His credentials certainly validate and confirm Brandon’s qualifications to help the PDL program as an Assistant General Manager. Brandon shares:
“What the Seahorses have done in my life words could never give it justice. They molded me, fostered me and helped me become the individual God intended me to be. I have been a huge supporter of what this program does in the lives of young men. When the opportunity came to be involved in an official capacity, I knew this was something I didn’t want to pass up. My hope is that I can help support Mark Schrock (GM), the Seahorse Staff and the USL League II program in continuing to foster and develop the next wave of sports ministers.”
