Career[edit]

Youth and college[edit]

As a child, Pérez was a member of Costa Rican powerhouse Saprissa's Futbol Academy, and at the age of 11 he was chosen to be a member of Saprissa traveling youth club. Pérez moved with his family to Miramar, Florida in the early 2000s; he attended Miami Killian High School, and went on to play four years of college soccer at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, ending his career there as the team's all time leader in goals (29), points (70), shots(160), and games played (78).[1]

During his college years, Pérez also played with Kansas City Brass in the USL Premier Development League.[2]

Professional[edit]

Pérez was signed by Miami FC of the USSF Division 2 Professional League in February 2010.[3] He made his professional debut on June 19, 2010 as a substitute in a 3-1 loss to the Austin Aztex,[4] but played just one more game for Miami before being released by the team mid-season.

Having been able to secure a professional contract with another team, Pérez signed to play for Des Moines Menace in the USL Premier Development League in 2011.

International[edit]

Although Perez has not yet been called up to any national team, he has expressed a preference to play for the Costa Rica national team, should the opportunity arise.[5] Pérez holds dual citizenship with Costa Rica and the United States.
