Perales, who has 11 years of experience in bilingual education, has extensive experience coaching club soccer, with stints at Mustangs FC, FC Dallas, DKSC and the DFW Tornados.
For Perales, Bearcat soccer is a family affair. His son, Cesar, started the 2021-2022 SHS season as a freshman and has been invited to Madrid for a soccer showcase next spring.
“I know these kids,” Perales said. “I’m invested in this community and it is my home. I want to build our program with a strong foundation, planting the seed of hard work and dedication in our youngest students so they have a passion for soccer when they get to high school.”
Athletic Director Jeff Cordell said that Perales’ experience in professional programs, as well as his history with the Bearcats, makes him a great asset for SHS.
“We are thrilled that Coach Perales has come home to Sherman,” Cordell said. “He was a cornerstone of the Bearcat soccer program for many years, and truly has a heart for our students. He wants them to be successful not only on the field, but in life. The capacity to build those relationships are what makes a good coach stand out from a great coach.”
Perales is a U.S. Navy veteran and earned his bachelor’s degree in bilingual education from Midwestern State University.
