Whos is Carlos Arroyo?
Carlos Alberto Arroyo Bermúdez, son of Carlos Arroyo and Glorían Bermúdez, was the fifth player in the history of Puerto Rico to play in the NBA. Right now he is a member of the Utah Jazz basketball team.
In 1997 he was named Rookie of the Year by the Puerto Rican League. He was a member of the National Team that won a Bronze Medal at the Pan-American Games in 2003. That same year at Centro Basket, Carlos won Gold for Puerto Rico. He was a member of the Puerto Rican basketball team at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
Mister Arroyo was invited to the White House by President George Walker Bush for his achievements as an athlete. He is an example and motivator for our youth and his most faithful fans are the “cariduros.” (A nickname by which Fajardeños are known.)
