Colorado Springs, CO (January 2, 2020) – The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC announced today that the club has signed Everardo "Ever" Rubio, pending USL Championship and USSF approval.
"First of all, I am very grateful for the opportunity to be part of this great team, to be able to add my grain of sand," said Rubio. "I'm also happy on the other hand and aware that we must have an excellent season to reach what every team wants, to be the champions. I reiterate my commitment to the club that opened the door for me, and ensure that I will give my all and defend the shirt to death. Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this opportunity to demonstrate all that I can bring to the team."
Rubio, 23, has experience in the United States and Mexico where he played with Murcielagos FC from 2014 to 2019, appearing in 78 matches for the club. The left-footed center back most recently played for the Tacoma Defiance in the USL Championship last year where he made eight appearances after joining the team midseason.
"We are excited to welcome Ever to the Switchbacks," said Switchbacks Head Coach, Alan Koch. "He is a young player with very good experience and his brief experience with the Sounders organization will make his transition to our team in the USL Championship easier. I am excited to integrate him into our backline. He is a good physical presence that also has the requisite technical ability to fit the style of play that we will be implementing."
