The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC announced today the signing of Kris Reaves, pending USL Championship and USSF approval.
"We have been looking for an experienced and quality center back and Kris [Reaves] has filled that," said Switchbacks Head Coach, Steve Trittschuh. "He is a strong, good 1v1 defender and distributes well. He fits in perfectly with our team."
Reaves joined the FC Dallas Academy in 2012 where he was also a member of the U-18 Academy team. As an FC Dallas Homegrown player, he saw time with the Reserve team before his college career. In 2018, Reaves started two games and appeared as a sub twice for the FC Dallas first team.
"I'm glad to be with the Switchbacks in Colorado Springs. I've heard really good things about the city. We have great players and a very experienced coaching staff," said Reaves. "I'm excited to get the season started. I think we can have a special year and surprise a lot of people if we bring everything together!"
