We are proud to recognize and congratulate two PTFC Alumni who achieved great success with their college program this fall.
Alex Rebolledo and Paco Cortez Vazquez, both juniors on the Pfeiffer University Men’s Soccer team and former PTFC players, achieved the ultimate honor in collegiate athletics by winning the NCAA National Championship on Saturday in Pensacola, Florida. Capturing the National Title capped off a truly “perfect” year for the Falcons, who finished the year with an undefeated record of 25-0-0. This is just the third time in NCAA history that a men’s soccer team has gone undefeated and won the National Championship. Pfeiffer's four goals scored in their 4-0 victory was the second-most in an NCAA Division II championship game.
“This year was a year that one can only dream about,” said Rebolledo. “Going 25-0 is almost impossible. It was unbelievable. I give credit to all the great players we have and the amazing coaching staff that we have. We are a team of brothers.” Cortez Vazquez also felt like it was too good to be true, saying “I have always looked forward to this, but never imagined that it would happen this way with a perfect season. This was the best experience of my life without a doubt. I have to thank many people for making this possible, but especially thanks to PTFC because that is where everything started.”
Both Rebolledo and Cortez Vazquez spent their youth careers with PTFC as members of the ‘94 Black team. We are so very happy for these two young men and for everyone else who played a role in Pfeiffer’s success this fall.
Alex and Paco – thank you for being such fantastic representatives for PTFC at the NCAA level, and congratulations again on this awesome achievement!
