Hagerstown has added Anthony Valladarez out of Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, MD. Valladarez missed almost all of his senior year due to an injury. Now nearing full recovery, he has committed to Hagerstown for the upcoming season. Valladarez found himself playing at either Right Wing, Striker or Center Attacking Midfielder while playing for the Patriots. The attacking threat hopped on the scene as a Freshman for TJ. Between his Freshman and Junior year Anthony amassed 15 goals and 16 assists. Valladarez helped the Patriots advance to the 2017 3A West region finals as a junior. The Patriot forward also played club soccer with Pachuca UFC 99 before moving to FC Frederick where he spent his last four season.
Anthony joins fellow TJ High graduate Habraam Gonzalez Escalera, and Frederick County recruit Anthony Zarate.
"Anthony provides us with creativity and versatility up front, said head coach CJ Trammell. "We are excited to find unique ways for him to be involved in the attack this upcoming season."
"I felt at home when I came to visit the HCC Facilities," said Valladarez. "I look forward to making this my home for the next two years, and giving my best to this program. I'd like to thank my family and friends, especially Richard Rivas, he's the reason I strive for greatness."
