UCLA student never played for football club listed on her Bruin athletic profile, official said

A UCLA student whose parents are wrapped up in a nationwide university's admission scandal involving several prominent public figures and universities, reportedly did not play for the football club, as she is listed as the captain.

Lauren Isackson's athletic profile on the university women's football team website claims she was the captain of the Woodside Soccer Club from 2012 to 2016 and was chosen as the team's most valuable player. The profile also says she was named as an honorable listing choice on the all-West Bay Athletic League team.

Zak Ibsen, who took the job as Woodside Soccer Clubs coaching director two years ago, told KGO-TV on Wednesday the law that Isackson claims he had been on not existed for her age group.

"We have not been able to substantiate any claims or evidence that she has ever participated in any of our teams," he told the station.

Isackson's honorable mention choice is also questionable. The West Bay Athletic site did not show Isackson's name on the Honorable List for the 2013-14 season.

Ibsen said he thought something was strange when he heard that someone from the Woodside club was being recruited by UCLA. Isackson was in the same recruiting class as Hailie Mace, who continued to make US national team and Anika Rodriguez, who were second in the team in scoring and goals and Ashley Sanchez, who had participated in US national teams before joining Bruins in 2017.

There were no statistics listed for Isackson for the 2017 season when she was listed as a midfielder.

Bruce Isackson and his wife Davina considered cooperating with William "Rick" Singer, who claimed to have several accusations of racketeering and money laundering last week, in 2015. Isackon's fake sports profile was sent to UCLA football trainer Jorge Salcedo, according to Journal. Salcedo then sent the reported youth test results and transcripts to an above-mentioned trainer on the women's team.

Isacksonsna reportedly gave Singer more than 2,100 Facebook shares in the form of donations to the Key Worldwide Foundation, the Los Angeles Times reported, quoting an affidavit. The singer used to use the charity to pay Salcedo and Ali Khosroshahin, a former USC coach allegedly having passed Isackson's profile to Salcedo.


Salcedo was the only person from UCLA accused in the system and was placed on leave. The scandal has swept up other high-profile individuals, including actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman.
