Congratulations are in order for three Colorado Rapids Academy players and one of their coaches. On July 13, Defender Samuel Vines made the U17/18 Central Conference Best XI, defender Eben Noverr made the U15/16 Central Conference Best XI, and midfielder Milo Garvanian also made the U15/16 Central Conference Best XI. U16 Head Coach Chris Cartlidge was one of four coaches to be honored with a Coach of the Year award.

Vines was a regular starter with the Rapids and was able to get three goals in the 24 games he played. Garvanian scored two goals in 16 games, and played eight games with the U18s. Noverr is a defender to keep your eye on, as he put in an impressive seven goals in 17 games.

U16 Head Coach Chris Cartlidge joined the staff in 2015, and led the U16 squad to the DA quarterfinals this year.
