El Paso Tx - The newest team for El Paso continues their recruiting as they sign two new players to the team and as the days pass, we get even more excited to see what the team has to offer and what potential the players they sign and what till the outcome be this season.
Let’s break it down for you and go in detail with the two most recent signings.
Luis “Chapa” Herrera
Luis Herrera is the first El Paso Local talent to join the Locomotive team and looks like a very promising player in the Center Midfield position. He is 22 years old and started his try outs and caught the eye of the locomotive coaching staff since November of 2018, and then was invited back again recently for more tryouts and continued to show out and impress everyone so head coach Mark Lowry decided to give him his first professional soccer contract and join the team! We can’t wait to see him on the pitch this coming March and we will all be looking forward to seeing what true potential Luis Herrera has.
This young Mexican midfielder has been signed on a loan from Club Chivas de Guadalajara. Coming from a background with the club in their youth programs the U15 and the U20 squads for Chivas, he made his pro debut with the main squad in August against Cruz Azul and since then he has been an eye for many teams looking for young talent to develop even more.
He signed with locomotive fc and head coach Lowry had some great words to say about Kevin, “When the opportunity presented itself to bring Ramirez to El Paso, it was a very simple decision. He is very versatile, he can play 3-4 positions within the team. He is a very intelligent player, composed and incredibly mature player for someone so young,” said Lowry.
We expect some solid leadership from this player in the midfield and wish for the best when the season starts!
Edson is the newest Loan transfer from Toluca FC. He is also a Mexican player who is currently 21 years old and has been on the pitch with the first division team multiple times and is currently a top prospect player that can bring a lot to this team in a sense of professional experience and happens to be very agile and a great left winger that has a passion to run at defenders and is always aiming to score no matter what!
The attacking mid field has had all of experience in Mexico playing with Chiapas U17 group, Culula FC’s third division and the U20 group of Toluca FC. Bringing this experience and this top Teams trusting the process for Locomotive FC is a huge step for the local team here to see even bigger names in the future here. Best of luck to the 12th signing to the Team and let’s hope the season starts with a bang.
Times are set!
The team has set times and dates for the entire season so make sure you set up your calendars and don’t miss out on the opportunity to ride the crazy train starting March 9th!
