Jaime Gomez New Varsity Head Boys Soccer Coach

Hillsdale is proud to announce that we have hired Jaime Gomez as our new boys varsity soccer head coach at Hillsdale. Coach Gomez has been a key member of the varsity soccer coaching staff for the last two years and played a key role in helping guide the team back to the PAL Bay division and to the semifinals of the CCS playoffs in 2016-17. Coach Gomez is a Hillsdale alumni, Class of 1993, and a decorated player for the Knights in the early 90’s. Coach Gomez matriculated to Canada College where he played soccer for two years and later transferred to San Jose State and played soccer for the Spartans. After college, Jaime played for the soccer club at the Olympic Club in San Francisco and later for the San Francisco Seals Men’s Soccer Club (Semi-Professional).

Coach Gomez has an extensive coaching background in club soccer where he is known as an excellent teacher of the game with a strong emphasis on skill development. “I am excited and honored to return to Hillsdale’s Soccer as Head Coach and continue the efforts to developing the program,” adds Gomez. “So fulfilling to know that I can give back to my alma mater, bringing back great memories from on and off the field, while being a positive role model to young adult student athletes.” Coach Gomez is currently serving as director of coaching for the SMC Earthquakes. Coach Gomez has also formed an excellent coaching staff. Manuel Pliego will enter year three as an assistant coach for the varsity soccer team. Coach Pliego is also a Hillsdale alum, class of 1992. Coach Gomez has also brought in Brian Mansell as associate head coach. Coach Mansell is currently the executive director of the San Mateo County Soccer club and has twenty years of coaching and teaching experience on the peninsula. “Coach Mansell comes highly regarded in the soccer community and played a key role in working with the San Jose Earthquakes in creating a partnership with San Mateo County Star to help strengthen the presence of the youth development system on the Bay Area Peninsula,” notes athletic director Brett Stevenson.

The new coaching staff is excited for the upcoming Hillsdale Knights soccer season. There will be a mandatory introductory meeting at lunch this Tuesday in room 110 for ALL students interested in trying out for soccer. Coach Gomez is excited to meeting the students on Tuesday. “I am very excited that Jaime Gomez has accepted the varsity soccer position at Hillsdale. Jaime has tremendous enthusiasm and positive energy. At the varsity level, it is critical that are coaches can teach at a high level and communicate and build relationships with our student athletes.
