Ruben Tufino

Ruben Dario Tufino Schwenk is a former Bolivian football midfielder who played in the Liga de Futbol Profesional Boliviano for important clubs, as well as, the Bolivian national team.

He began playing football at a young age for the prestigious Tahuichi Academy, where he later received a scholarship to play for the University of South Carolina. During his years as a Gamecock Tufino became one of the most successful players in the school program's history.

After graduating from college, he decided to continue developing his football career and in 1995 he returned to his country to sign with first division club Oriente Petrolero. After two great seasons in Oriente, he transferred to main rival Blooming where he was part of back-to-back national titles. Due to a disagreement in his contract he returned to Oriente Petrolero the following season, before joining the celestes for the second time around in 2001. The following year, Tufino signed with Bolivar from La Paz, where he spent the next two campaigns and added two more national championships to his resume. After negotiating with The Strongest, he agreed to a one-year-deal with the atigrados which he played for during 2005. Finally, in 2006 he made his third spell with Blooming and by the end of the season he announced his retirement from football.
