ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Klaus Weber said at the beginning of the soccer season that it would be his last. The Bosque Bobcats coach has been a part of the New Mexico soccer scene for the last 40 years.
“Forty years now in Albuquerque, New Mexico being involved in all of the formulations of the leagues,” said Weber. “The Duke City Soccer League, the Albuquerque Soccer League, men and women and of course setting a foundation at UNM.”
Klaus coached men’s soccer at the University of New Mexico two separate times. His last stint went from 1995 to 2007.
He won five league championships during that time. He also had a two year period where he coached men’s soccer and the UNM Ski team. Weber has been at Bosque School for 14 years and will go into his final high school state tournament as the number one seed in Class A-4A. His team finished 13-3-3 this year and winning it all to end his career would be memorable.
“Of course that would be sweet,” says Weber.
Bosque School will play their first match of the tournament November 5th.
