Webb Alumnus Signs with LAFC Major League Soccer Team
Daniel Crisostomo ‘15 just signed a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC), a move that will bring him back to Southern California after playing professionally in Las Vegas. Crisostomo also played professionally for the Orange County SC after graduating from UC Irvine as a four-year starter.
A stellar athlete at Webb, Crisostomo was named four times to the First Team All-League; two times League MVP and was named San Joaquin League Athlete of the Year (across all sports) his senior year. He was also named Webb Athlete of the Year in 2014 and 2015.
Crisostomo was a strong student and community leader at Webb. His father, brother and other family members never missed a game, and were often the first ones to arrive on game day and the last to leave.
There was a palpable energy around Webb’s soccer program that grew from leaders like Crisostomo and his teammates James Romero ‘15, Joe Rode ‘15, Barrett Fischer ‘16, and brothers Cole and Wyatt Albert (‘15 and ‘17, respectively). The legacy of the 2015 team’s runner-up finish in the CIF Regional State Championships saw WSC soccer winning San Joaquin League titles in 2015, 2017 and 2018 and finishing with winning records and deep playoff runs every year since.
LAFC’s season runs through November 2021 with home games at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles and streaming on Estrella TV, ESPN+ and other platforms.
