About David Saldivar
David Roberto Saldivar is from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where he had a pristine view of Jerry’s Death Star from his backyard. His undergraduate degree is from Ouachita Baptist University where he lettered in Division II Soccer and set the record for shortest goalkeeper to ever record a shutout. He spent 4 years teaching high school physics and coaching high school football after convincing the program that playing Madden on XBOX was enough experience. After successfully becoming Assistant Offensive Coordinator-Passing Division, he decided to embark on a new challenge of medical school. He graduated from American University of the Caribbean in 2016. During his time in medical school he wanted to give back to the community and became involved in service to the island, including being elected as the Presiding Senior of Phi Chi Medical Fraternity, Sigma Chi Mu chapter.
'Dave' chose WVU for its program size, faculty support, affordability, and location. When he is not in the hospital he valiantly consumes as much soccer, ahem, ‘proper football,' as humanly possible (USA all the way!). He also enjoys the running-friendly-outdoors that Morgantown has to offer. He plays golf as if his score is meant to resemble that of an NBA game. When the weather is a bit dodgy he can be found practicing outlandish new tie knots that he will never get to wear. During the winter he enjoys taking his snowboard out to play.
