Charles Alamo

Charles Alamo (born November 16, 1984) is an American soccer player currently playing for Los Angeles Galaxy in Major League Soccer.

Alamo was PAC 5 League MVP, All-County MVP and a member of the All-CIF First Team with San Luis Obispo High School in San Luis Obispo, California, before attending UC Riverside. Between 2003 and 2007 Alamo played in 45 games for the Highlanders (despite missing virtually the entire 2005 season with a broken finger), registered 10 shutouts, was named Big West Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2006, and Big West Keeper of the Year in 2007. He is the UCR all-time leader in goalie wins, saves, minutes played, matches played, and shutouts.

During his college years Alamo also briefly played with the now-defunct Central Coast Roadrunners of the USL Premier Development League in their final year of competition.

Alamo was the 18th overall pick in the 2008 MLS Supplemental Draft, selected by the Los Angeles Galaxy; however, he is unlikely to feature prominently in the 2008, after he tore knee ligaments during the Galaxy's pre-season.
