After learning the game of soccer at West Aurora High School, Carlos Gil brought his talents to Waubonsee in 1982. His freshman year, Gil recorded 23 goals and 21 assists to help Waubonsee break into the NJCAA national rankings, earning All-Skyway Conference and All-Region IV First Team honors along the way. As a sophomore, Gil improved to 43 goals, and more awards followed, including NJCAA Second Team All-American status, and both the Skyway and Region IV Player of the Year honors. After his playing days were over, Gil took over as the Chiefs head coach, guiding Waubonsee to the Region IV finals for the third consecutive year before transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Parkside on a full soccer scholarship.
