A rugged and combative central defender, Vidrio played for Chivas until 1996. He then spent two seasons at Toluca and three at UAG Tecos before joining Pachuca, where he became one of the most effective defenders in Mexico. Lining up in a tough back line that also included Mexico internationales Alberto Rodriguez and Octavio Valdez, later joined by Francisco Gabriel de Anda, Vidrio helped Pachuca to its first national professional title in the Invierno 1999 season. The team went on to win the Invierno 2001 and Apertura 2003 championships as well. Vidrio retired after a short stint with Veracruz in 2006.

Although he earned a number of caps in the mid-1990s, beginning in 1993, Vidrio's international career did not take off until the appointment of Pachuca coach Javier Aguirre as Mexican national coach in 2001. Vidrio was installed in the starting lineup for Aguirre's first match, a 1-0 win over the United States, and he remained a fixture in the first team through the qualifiers, the Copa America, and the World Cup. His final cap was also against the United States, in the 2-0 second-round loss in Jeonju that eliminated Mexico from the tournament and signaled the end of Aguirre's first spell in command of the national team.

Personal life

He has a wife and 3 kids, who currently reside in San Antonio, Texas. Nailea
