Denise Garcia Stops by En Fuego House to Drop Trick Shots and Discuss Mexican Heritage

Creative talent and former soccer player Denise Garcia took time out to literally kick it at the En Fuego House.

The En Fuego House is a 7,000-square-foot house tucked away in Bel Air. It’s a place to unwind, kick back and, as it was recently for social media star Denise Garcia, try out some trick shots.

The Southern California native grew up in Chino Hills and fell in love with the pitch, later featuring on the U.C. Riverside and Seattle Redhawks soccer teams.

The former “Ball in the Family” star is now a busy mom whose style and fashion play out to the hundreds of thousands of followers she has across her social media channels.

Garcia was nice enough to drop by the EF House to hang out and talk about all the things on her mind.

She sat down with content creator Davie Dave to dish on the most obvious relationship red flags for a segment that typifies the laidback cool of this So Cal native.

It wasn’t enough for her to hold class on the dos and don’ts of present-day dating, she also showed off her soccer skills.

You see, most people shoot the three with their hands. Garcia proved there is a more entertaining way to pull that shot off.

No good kickback is complete without bringing up family, and it’s a subject very dear to Garcia who is Mexican American.

On the heels of a recent Mexican jersey reveal, the social media star was asked what El Tri’s kit meant to her.

“The Mexican jersey means a lot to me because it represents where I'm from, and my grandparents came from Mexico,” she tells En Fuego. “So, I'm forever grateful for that. And I love the culture and I wouldn't be where I am without them today.”

The jersey also reminds Garcia of the days growing up in Chino Hills, raised by hardworking parents that leaned on their own parents to take care of their daughter.

“One thing that sticks with my Mexican heritage to me was when I was always at my grandparents’ house, because my parents worked a lot,” she continued. “They worked the 9-to-5, so I was with my grandma and my grandpa five days out of the week. I was forced to learn the language because that’s what they spoke. And I appreciate that so much now, being able to speak Spanish and share that culture with them.”
