Carleigh Frilles’ parents Meredith, and Alan Frilles, raised three kids, with two turning out to be athletes. Carleigh is the middle child of the family.
The US-born Philippines-representing soccer player, Carleigh Frilles, made her international debut last year at the 2022 AFC Women’s Asian Cup. The youngster has already won a gold medal for her country, as the Philippines beat Thailand in the 2022 AFF Women’s Championship.
Though both her parents come from a non-sporting background, they have supported her soccer career. And it is not only her parents but her grandparents and siblings who are currently Down Under to watch the Philippines compete in the World Cup.
The Philippines team comprising Carleigh and teammates Olivia McDaniel and Hali Long, shocked the host nation, New Zealand, as they beat them 1-0. The Philippines will next play against Norway, hoping they can qualify for the next round.
Carleigh Frilles Parents, Meredith, And Alan Frilles
Carleigh Frilles’ parents Meredith, and Alan Frilles, raised the soccer player in Fairfax, Virginia.
The US-born soccer player, Careligh represents the Philippines Women’s National Team, as her father’s heritage traces to the Asian country. Carleigh began representing the Philippines at age 13 when she was approached at a training camp.
The soccer player’s dad, Alan Frilles, graduated from Radford University with a psychology degree in 1999. And Carleigh’s love for the sport might come from her father, who has voluntarily managed FC Virginia for the last 13 years.
Alan is the senior manager at T-Mobile USA, a position he has been managing since December 2022. Previously he worked as a Government Account Executive for T-Mobile.
Previously, Alan worked for AT&T Wireless as a business account executive for five years until 2005. He then joined Liberty Mutual Insurance and worked there for four years before beginning his journey with T-Mobile.
He joined the company as a regional account manager in 2009 and was promoted to sales manager in 2015 before becoming a senior manager in 2016.
Alan then left the communication company to join Samsung, where he worked as a senior manager for four years before rejoining T-Mobile in 2021.
Carleigh’s mother, Meredith Frilles, remains one of her biggest cheerleaders and has shared several posts relating to her daughter’s success on her Facebook handle.
