FC Wisconsin Nationals is proud to have Gustavo (Goose) Esquivel head up the Junior Development Program. Gustavo, known to most as Goose, grew up playing in Milwaukee. Gustavo attended Marquette High School where he was a two year captain, a MVP his senior season, and a two time High School State Championship.
Goose attended Cardinal Stritch University for 3 seasons where he played in 45 games. He demonstrated great leadership abilities at the college level too being named team captain during his sophomore year. Goose earned the Scholar Athlete award every year at Stritch and is a coaching assistant within the current program.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to get Goose on staff. As a player, he was superb technically and demanded that out of his teammates. He excels at improving the Junior Development Program players' technical skills in preparation for the older programs within FC Wisconsin. Goose’s degree is in education, so he is also a great teacher of the game,” said Co-DOC Ben Shepherd.
Goose has worked several clinics around the south side of the city for Hispanic and Latino youth players. “I’m really excited to be a part of such a great club. I love the club philosophy, the togetherness, and the ability to help shape the foundation of this club by helping teach the younger players the fundamentals of the game,” said Esquivel.
