In the summer of 2020, David Castillo took over the reins of the Louisiana College men's soccer team.
Castillo came to LC following a very successful stint as an assistant coach on the Southeastern (Fla.) University women's soccer team, where he helped guide the Fire to the semifinals of the NAIA National Championship Tournament during his lone season at SEU in 2019. That team boasted five NAIA All-Americans, including the NAIA's National Player of the Year, and finished the season #4 in the NAIA Coaches' Top 25 following the postseason.
He got his coaching start at his alma mater, Florida College, where he served on the coaching staffs of both the Falcons' men's & women's teams, including a two-year stint as the women's head coach. During his time leading the FC women, the Falcons earned a trip to the USCAA National Championship Tournament, earned a number one ranking in the USCAA poll, set up the program's first ever soccer ID camp to assist in recruiting, and aided FC's transition into the NAIA & Southern States Athletic Conference. Under his guidance, the Falcons earned a berth in the SSAC postseason tournament in its first season in the conference.
During his playing days at Florida College, Castillo started all four seasons and earned the captain's arm band. He also went on to play and coach on the semi-professional level. Castillo is a native of Riverview, Fla. and received his Bachelor's Degree from Florida College in elementary education.
