HISTORY & FORMER PLAYERS
Houston South Select was established in 2007 after the Texas South U23 Select team program was canceled. Then Head Coach David DeVerteuil founded Houston South Select for the purpose of top high school players, college players and any female players preparing to compete at the professional or national level as well as for international level. During the 2008-2014 Women’s Premier Soccer League, Houston South Select have had an amazing pool of top collegiate and International players who played in WUSA, WPS and foreign leagues around the world. Also, some players have played in the Women’s World Cup or represented their country at the highest level. Houston South Select has been a spring board for local club players to prepare for college soccer as well as allow others the experience to further their career in competitive soccer.
