VENTURA ALVARADO is an American soccer player who currently plays for Liga MX club Santos Laguna.
He started playing soccer with Tuzos Soccer Club when he was 9 years old and, according to his father, it is the club that encouraged Ventura’s strengths and put him on the path to where he is now.
MIGUEL ANGEL GARCIA, current Vice President of Univision Deportes Network, attributes his professional success to the Tuzos program. “I come from a family of immigrants,” he says. “We were not as fortunate as others. Just like many immigrant families coming to the United States, it was a challenge. We lived in what was considered the most dangerous neighborhood in the south of Phoenix.”
