UVA Alum & Former MLS Player
Hi my name is Ross LaBauex, I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. I grew up playing Club Soccer for the Chicago Magic Soccer Club. During my club soccer days I won numerous state, regional, and national championships. I’ve always had a deep passion and love for the game and have worked extremely hard in dedicating much of my life to soccer.
Through my hard work and dedication on and off the field as a youth player, and creating (though I didn’t know it at the time) the “Ultimate Soccer Recruiting Blueprint” I put myself in the best
positions to receive recruitment offers from a wide range of top college soccer programs.
I was fortunate enough to be recruited and eventually decided sign to play soccer for The University of Virginia. One of the most prestigious Soccer programs in the nations, and a great academic university too. My time at the University of Virginia was very special, and I am very thankful for the experience.
I was fortunate enough to be a 4-year Letterman, 2-year Captain, 1 time All-ACC, 2009 ACC Tournament Champion, and the 2009 NCCA Men’s Soccer National Champion.
Upon completing my B.A. in Sociology, I was drafted by the Colorado Rapids, of Major League Soccer, in the 2010 MLS Superdraft. I spent 3 seasons in Colorado, which is where Quincy and I became friends, teammates, and business partners. We were apart of a great team that won the 2010 MLS Cup, the first in club history!
It was the through the time we spent in Colorado where we exchanged our recruitment stories and realized that the recruiting process is something that is completely unknown amongst parents and youth coaches. And that in almost all cases, students, parents, and youth coaches are guessing as to what it is they need to be doing along the way. This is why we came up with the idea to create something that left no stone unturned when it comes to putting your child in the best position to achieve their soccer dreams and how to avoid costly mistakes along the way.
I want to continue to grow the game of Soccer because soccer is one of the best sports in the world, and has given me so many great life-long memories and taught me many life lessons. I currently reside in Chicago, were I am actively involved in spreading the game of soccer to inner city and want to help as many kids as possible achieve their soccer dreams.
See you inside!
