Carlos Luna is no stranger to students around the Bryan High School Boys Soccer program. Luna has coached students around the Bryan community for over two decades at the elementary, middle and high school levels, serving the last four years as the Bryan High School Junior Varsity Coach.
Now, he will take over as head coach of the team he played on while a student at Bryan High in the 1980’s.
“I like to coach players to their highest potential with passion, skill and respect for the game and our school,” Luna said. “This is a responsibility that I take very seriously. Having taught and coached some of these young men since their elementary years has been an honor, and I hope to continue to do so throughout their upcoming years at Bryan High.”
Luna was also a student-athlete as a soccer player at SFA Middle School, and in addition to his time coaching at the high school level, he has coached boys soccer at SFA winning five district championships in a row.
“I’m a teacher first, but I’m also a mentor, role model, confidant, and even a friend to these student-athletes,” Luna said. “For that, my goal is to help student-athletes grow as individuals, connect with them, and be there for them.”
