When Roberto Salinas was 4 years old his mom signed him up to play soccer through Mountain Home Parks and Rec. After only a few games Dalila Yanez pulled her son out for the season because he did not want to leave her side and wanted her on the field with him. A year later Yanez tried again and the shy boy from the year before fell in love with the sport.

From the very beginning Salinas has been a hard worker who does everything a coach asks of him. At nine -years-old he made the jump from parks and rec ball to the Mountain Home competitive soccer club.
