Carlos Munoz - Carlos Munoz was born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras and moved to Lynchburg in 2003. 

His soccer career began while playing academy soccer in Honduras as a child. When in Lynchburg, Munoz continued competing in travel leagues, high school soccer at Jefferson Forest High School, and then college soccer at Southern Virginia University. He moved on to coach middle school and high school soccer at New Covenant Schools in Lynchburg. 

“Growing up in the hispanic culture, soccer is our sport,” Munoz said. “We grow up with a love and appreciation of the game from a young age. I want to bring that love and appreciation of the game to Lynchburg and use it to build strong, lasting relationships within the community.”

 

Greg White - Originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, Greg White moved to Lynchburg in 2008 to play NCAA Division 1 soccer at Liberty University. After his college career White competed in two UPSL seasons in Charlottesville, Virginia, and was the assistant coach for the Randolph College Men’s Soccer program for two years. 

 

“Since I played at a high level in college and beyond I wanted to bring something like that to Lynchburg,” White said. “We wanted to build something that could give opportunities to athletes looking for a challenge while positively impacting Lynchburg and the surrounding areas.”

 

White hopes the club will be competitive on the national level within the UPSL and attract talent from across Virginia, and has long-term goals of using the club to give back to the Lynchburg community through youth, teen, and young adult engagement.

“We want LFC to be a part of moving the city forward,” White said.

 

Jim Rochow - Jim followed his passion for soccer to various levels of the game throughout his youth. In high school he set numerous scoring records, and helped lead Jefferson Forest High School to its first ever regional title and reach a state title match. During his high school years he spent 3 seasons playing and traveling with the Virginia State ODP program where he eventually captained the team for several tournaments. He played a full 90 minutes against Bayern Munich’s youth team in a 1-0 victory. 

 

After high school Jim was a member of the 2007 Elon Men’s Soccer team at Elon University. After transferring to Lynchburg College, Jim spent one year with the men’s soccer program where he helped the team advance to the NCAA tournament after capturing an ODAC title. 

After graduating from Lynchburg College (now Lynchburg University) with a B.A. in Sports Management, Jim spent several years working for various soccer academies and travel clubs. Over the course of several years Jim advanced within his travel clubs until he was the youth director for a Player Development League and summer camps with Brit-Am Soccer Academy and also served as the U8 Director for Potomac Soccer Association. Between both clubs, he oversaw 500+ players and their development. He now holds a USSF grassroots license and USSF E license.

 

RJ Goodwin - RJ Goodwin was born and raised in Lynchburg, Virginia. 

 

He played soccer in Lynchburg for all of his childhood, both travel and school leagues, finishing his competitive career at Jefferson Forest High School, securing a 2011 State Championship in the VHSL. He remains involved in recreational play in the community today.

 

“I love the high competition LFC will bring to Lynchburg soccer,” Goodwin said. “But what really excites me is our desire to bring a fire for soccer to our town. I was that kid who found community and acceptance in local soccer leagues. It’s a beautiful game, and we’re excited to bring another dimension of it to Lynchburg.”
