Wednesday nights was a big night for the Raptors Soccer Club. 12 seniors from the U18-19 team signed college letters of intent.
A 13th senior will sign in a few weeks. That means every senior in the program this year will wind up playing in college.
"They're a great group of kids," says Raptors coach Frank Mateus. "More important than how good they are is how committed they are. We've had a great run but more importantly they've continually gotten better and they're excited about playing at the next level which is a fun experience for us."
