SAFC adds Jahir Barraza on loan from FC Atlas


San Antonio FC has added forward Jahir Barraza on loan from FC Atlas of Liga MX for the 2019 USL Championship season, the club announced on Tuesday.

Barraza comes to SAFC on loan after making 70 appearances with Atlas since signing back in 2008 and also with Acenso MX club Venados FC where he made 12 appearances.

“We had the opportunity to take Jahir on loan from Atlas,” said SAFC Head Coach Darren Powell in a team press release. “He is an accomplished striker who has played with some of the top teams in Mexico. He is an exciting player that will certainly be challenging for a starting spot from day one.”

The most impressive season for Barraza came in the 2015-16 season when he totaled 2,792 minutes and scored 14 goals with Necaxa.

“I’m thrilled to join this club,” said Barraza. “I’m excited for this opportunity to play abroad, which is something I’ve always dreamed of. It’s a challenge that I’ll take on while being committed to giving my best every day to achieve our collective and personal goals.”

San Antonio FC will open the 2019 season on March 9 against Phoenix Rising FC at Toyota Field at 7:30 pm Central Time.
