Quick News and Notes

A couple of quick pieces of news.
  • Dillon Serna and Shane O'Neill made the roster cut for the U.S. National Team's upcoming friendlies against Chile (in  Chile) and Panama (at the Stub Hub Center).  So while that will delay their joining of the Rapids in preseason its great experience for them.
  • Dillon Powers tweeted that Grant Van de Casteele was with him for their first practice yesterday, so as we expected.
  • I missed this before but Axel Sjoberg, our first round pick, tweeted before the draft that he had signed a MLS contract.
