He recorded three goals and three assists across 19 games his freshman year, then led the team his sophomore year with nine goals and another four assists. Four of these goals were the game-winning shots. Flores was selected to the All-Lone Star Conference First Team, D2CCA All-Region First Team, and United Soccer Coaches All-Region Third Team. Flores currently holds a collegiate total of 16 goals with the Chaps.
The next addition to the roster is Fabian Becerra, a junior at Loyola University Chicago.
