Congrats, Tristan Weber!

August 27, 2021

Congrats to our player TWEBZ on his first pro contract! Many more to come!


Tristan dropped out of SDSU with 2 seasons left to play as he felt called to start his professional career. 


He went on trials at Orlando City SC, San Diego Loyals and others, gaining interest, but they were not the right fit.


On July 30th, while helping at our Free Play Friday ministry at Saddleback Church, Pastor Walmer Landaverde and Tristan reconnected with an old mutual friend, Richard Bailey on FaceTime. Richard’s son Zico currently plays for FC Cincinnati in the MLS and played with Tristan at the LA Galaxy youth academy.


Richard told Tristan, “You need to try out at LAFC2 because they are signing the young, local talent and bringing them up to the first team in the MLS.” Walmer and Tristan prayed for it to happen.


4 days later on Tuesday morning, while Tristan is in the middle of his Bible Study, the General Manager of LAFC2 (Las Vegas Lights) calls Tristan asking if he can come try out as they are in need of a Left Back. Tristan practiced with them the following week and earned a contract offer.


Today, Tristan becomes a professional soccer player and I am so proud of his faith and desire to work hard for his dream. There is so much in store for this young man and the sky is the limit.
