Yeah, if he is an "El Pasoan", he must of went to high school here, yet this is the first time I've heard of the guy. I wish him well, but I'm wondering why the local media wasn't reporting on this talent for the last couple of years.

He went to Cathedral but didn't graduate from there because he left to play soccer in Mexico.

The local media does not report on soccer!! Since this is a big story for them they are all over it!! Omar and his El Paso Club Team Texas Fire have been making news the last four years!! Congratulations to Omar we wish him the best!!
