Rafa Castillo named to USL Team of the Week


San Antonio FC midfielder Rafa Castillo has been named to the USL Team of the Week, the league announced on Tuesday.

Castillo played 90 minutes and scored the game-winning goal from 25 yards out as SAFC defeated the Tulsa Roughnecks FC 3-1.

“It’s one more blessing that God has given me, being named to the USL team of the week,” said Castillo.  It’s an honor to be named one of these 11 players and carry the San Antonio FC name with me. It is my responsibility and motivation to continue to work hard for my team. I thank the collective work of the team and the help of my teammates who gave it all on the field. I owe every step of the way to God and the glory is all his. He wins for all of us and drives us to do what’s best, so thanks be to God.”

San Antonio FC is currently 2-2-2 on the season and will return to the pitch on Saturday against the RGV Toros at 7:30 p.m. at Toyota Field.
