SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio FC midfielders Leo Torres and Jose Gallegos will return for the 2020 USL Championship season, the club announced on Tuesday morning.
Both Torres and Gallegos made their SAFC debuts last season. Torres was the first full-time SAFC Pro Academy player to sign with the first team, making him the youngest player ever to be signed at 15 years old in USL history at the time.
Gallegos played soccer at the Classic Elite Soccer Club in San Antonio while also attending and playing for Central Catholic High School. He was first discovered while participating in SAFC’s Elite Training Program.
“As a staff, we are excited to continue to work with both Leo and Jose for the upcoming season in 2020,” said SAFC Head Coach Alen Marcina. “Both players have demonstrated to the technical staff that they have the necessary qualities, commitment and desire to both develop and contribute positively to our environment. Our club is committed to providing opportunities to our youth players to develop within our fully integrated pathway and then provide opportunities for these players when they are earned.”
Both Torres and Gallegos join returning players Kai Greene, Josh Yaro, Matt Cardone, Cristian Parano and Ebenezer Ackon as well as newcomers Hayden Partain, Connor Maloney, Hunter Gorskie and Jesus Enriquez.
