Today, the Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC officially announced the signing of forward Nicholas Amoako for the remainder of the 2018 season. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Amoako, 20, is a product from the Kalonji Soccer Academy in Atlanta, Georgia where he was a member of the KSA '98 team that won a National League title in 2014.
