Tippecanoe Soccer Association is pleased to announce that Jorge Eufracio has been retained for the 2012-2013 season as a coach and trainer.  Jorge has lived in the Lafayette community for the past fourteen years. He is married to his wife Elisabeth and has two children, a son George who is a sophomore at Lafayette Jefferson and a daughter Isabella who recently turned one.

Jorge’s love of the game began while growing up in Mexico.

As his professional career wound down, he turned his love of the game to coaching.  Jorge has held numerous coaching positions and a few of the highlights include head coach of the Lafayette Veracruz FC men’s team (three Indiana Open State Cup championships), head coach of the FC Indiana men’s team (one Indiana Open State Cup championship), assistant coach for the FC Indiana women’s team (one national championship) and assistant coach for the Ireland women’s national team while they toured the United States.

Some of the players that he has coached / trained include Kristin Luckenbill (USA / Olympic Gold medal), Rich Balchan (USA / U20 National team / Columbus Crew), Fatima Leyva (Mexico / National team captain), Nickardo Blake (Jamaica / U20 National team / Toronto FC), Shannon Lynn (Scotland / National team), Mizuho Sakaguchi (Japan / World Cup Champions), Emma Byrne (Ireland / National team), Yvonne Tracy (Ireland / National team), Niamh Fahey (Ireland / National team / Arsenal Ladies) and Stefanie Curtis (Ireland / National team / Chelsea).

Jorge has played and coached at some of the highest levels that the sport of soccer has to offer. We are pleased to be able to offer his skills and talents to the Tippecanoe Soccer Association family. When you see him at our fields this fall, please feel free to introduce yourself and make him feel welcomed.
