Welcome Wilmer

Well, as you all know, some changes are afoot down here in Bradenton. Coach Cabrera is here today for the first time, going through some meetings, and will lead his first practice tomorrow. We’re excited to meet him and see what he’s like – we’ve all heard great things about him. There are a lot of unknowns with new coaches, but here is what we do know:

* Two-time World Cup veteran
* Played in two U-20 World Cups
* Grew up in the Colombian youth system
* Played for some of the best clubs in Colombia
* He's fluent in English after just three years of learning

It's all pretty impressive. We'll start getting to know him (and he'll start getting to know us too) this weekend.
