San Antonio FC held a combine Saturday for players who received callbacks from open tryouts as well as selected players who received calls to come on trial.
Coach Darren Powell told the media that a little over half of the 30 players at Toyota Field on Saturday came from the open tryouts the week before. Saturday’s activities included workouts for the coaching staff, including scrimmages. Should the trialists impress the coaching staff enough, they will receive a call to come back next week to train with the players already signed to the club for its inaugural season.
Several known SAFC players were in attendance, some working out in the morning and staying late into the evening to watch their potential teammates. Fan favorite Rafa Castillo, newest announced signing Josh Ford, and several others sat in the stands that they hope will be packed for the home opener April 9th.
