Kalish on Buendia:  

“Christian is a player we have had on our radar for some time because of his tremendous physical profile, game intelligence and overall passing and receiving ability. He really impressed and separated himself at our Billikens College Elite Camp last summer, and also had an excellent performance in the All-American game in Orlando. Christian is a player who will continue to grow and blossom into a top player for our program.”

Buendia on why he chose Saint Louis:

“I knew as soon as I stepped on campus that I wanted to go to SLU. I really liked the opportunity to get a great education and I loved the professional culture the players and coaches bring to the team. The coaches do not just make better soccer players, but better people. I am excited to join a program and play in a city with an incredible soccer history and to be part of a team that is quickly becoming one of the best in the nation.”
