SAFC re-signs defender Josh Yaro for 2020 season


San Antonio FC has re-signed defender Josh Yaro for the 2020 USL Championship season, the club announced on Thursday.

Yaro returns to the club after appearing in 32 league matches with SAFC last season. He led the team in clearances (126) and blocks (26) while playing all 90 minutes.

“We are thrilled to re-sign and welcome Josh Yaro back to the SAFC family,” said SAFC Head Coach Alen Marcina. “Josh is the epitome of players we seek as a club. He demonstrates excellent leadership on and off the field, he is committed to our club and community and he has showcased as one of the premier center-backs in the league.”

The 25-year-old was a key part of SAFC’s defense in 2019 and scored his first pro goal against Tacoma Difiance on Aug. 30.

“It’s good to be back,” said Yaro. “San Antonio is a place I consider home now. Last year, we didn’t achieve what we wanted, so I wanted to be part of this team that seems to be a strong group so far. I’m excited to work with Coach Alen and this organization, and I’m excited to play in front of our fans again and make something special out of this year.” 

Yaro joins returning players Matt Cardone, Cristian Parano and Ebenezer Ackon on the 2020 roster along with newcomers Connor Maloney, Hunter Gorskie and Jesus Enriquez.
