Gonzalez had 15 goals and four assists for the Pirates in 2010 and followed up that season with 34 goals and 10 assists in 2011, leading the Northwest Athletic Conference in points and goals.

Gonzalez, from Yelm, went to play at Seattle University after he was done at Peninsula. He has played professionally for the Seattle Sounders 2, the Kitsap Pumas, the Colorado Springs Switchbacks and the Oklahoma City Energy FC.
