San Antonio FC has signed defender Ryan Felix and midfielder/defender Gianluca Cuomo to contracts for the 2018 USL season, the club announced on Friday.
Felix comes to SAFC after spending the 2017 season with the Rochester Rhinos. He was named USL All-League Second Team after tied the team-high with 70 interceptions and recorded an 80 percent success rate winning 48 tackles.
“Ryan is someone we have tracked over the offseason while he was with New York City FC this preseason,” said SAFC Head Coach Darren Powell via a team press release. “We have watched him over the last couple of years with Orange County and Rochester and we are excited to add him to our back line this season.”
Cuomo joins SAFC after a successful trial with the club during the preseason.
“Gianluca has come in and done very well this preseason and impressed the coaching staff,” said Powell. “He has come in very hungry and shown good character and competitiveness. He has played well in preseason matches so we are glad to add him to the roster.”
San Antonio FC will open their third season in the Alamo City on Saturday, March 17 in Sacramento before returning to Toyota Field to host Saint Louis FC on March 24 at 7:30 p.m. for the clubs home opener.
