Congratulations to Noah Betancourt for being selected for the U15 US National Team camp next week in Chula Vista, California. Noah is a central defender for RISE’s U16 MLS Next team as a 1 year play-up. His athletic profile is tailor made for a dominant, possession-oriented center back. He’s fast, strong, extremely agile, and displays uncanny composure when he is on the ball.
“It’s a little overwhelming when you set high standard and goals for yourself and start to see them come true”, said Noah Betancourt. "My family, teammates, and club have made me better everyday and prepared me for what lies ahead on or off the field”.
Jon Burklo, RISE MLS Next Director, says “We are incredibly proud of the work Noah has put in to get himself to this point. He has the potential to play at the highest levels and hopefully this proves to be the first step. At RISE, we’ve worked diligently to create a high-performance environment for players to thrive. We look forward to continuing to work with Noah, and all of our players, in or order to help them reach their development goals.”
"We are so happy for Noah and his family” says, Vedad Hadzajlic, the Technical Director at RISE. "I would like to thank the Betancourt family for trusting the club, embracing our culture, and being excellent citizens of our soccer community”.
