Real Salt Lake sign winger Christopher Garcia as 21st Homegrown Player in team history


Real Salt Lake turned once more to their academy on Monday, announcing the signing of left winger Christopher Garcia as the 21st Homegrown Player in club history. Garcia also becomes the 11th Homegrown currently on RSL's roster.

Garcia, 17, joined the RSL Academy ahead of the 2018-19 season and has since recorded 18 goals in 38 games (30 starts). He has seven goals in six matches during the current 2019-20 U.S. Soccer Development Academy season. He has already spent the preseason training with RSL's first team.

“Chris is the latest in a long line of extremely talented players to come from our academy,” RSL general manager Elliot Fall said in a team statement. “He has already proven himself a standout academy performer and has been excellent when incorporated into professional training sessions. His technical ability and fantastic work rate give him an unlimited ceiling on his professional career.”
