Coach Raul Alfonso
Coach Alfonso was born and raised in Miami, FL. As a kid, he was always playing any sport he can which fostered his love of competition. He went on to play basketball and football for South Dade Senior High, but his passion was in football and this led him to sign with Newberry College in South Carolina. He studied and received his degree in communications, but he never lost his love for coaching.
Coach Alfonso started his professional coaching journey at South Dade Senior High as wide receivers coach. After being offered an amazing opportunity to build a sports program from the ground up, he “took his talents” to Somerset Academy South Homestead. He has served as Somerset Academy’s Athletic Director for 5 years and continues to expand the program each year as he works diligently to add new sports in order to give the Hurricanes more opportunities to compete!
