Juan Serrano, Elite Sports manager.

Serrano has been working for Elite Sports on Mission Street for approximately a year.

“It’s fun to work here,” he said explaining that he gets to talk about soccer all day with the many Latino clients who visit the store.

“We do well when there are games,” he said referring to the school year’s futbol season.

Serrano first played futbol at the age of six in Mexico, but Futbol Club Barcelona is his favorite team. He came to the United States when he was 13 years old and currently lives in the Mission.
