El Paso Locomotive FC signs Spanish Midfielder ‘Yuma’


El Paso Locomotive FC has a new player.

Spanish midfielder, Javier Monsalvez Carazo, also known as Yuma, will join the new team, Locomotive FC said in a news release.

Carazco has played professionally since 2005, spending most if it in Spain before moving to the United States in 2016.

Head coach Mark Lowry worked with Carazco with the Jacksonville Armada, along with Derek Gebhard and Joshua Castellanos who signed earlier this year.

“I am incredibly happy to be bringing Yuma here to El Paso,” Lowry said. “He is a player of tremendous ability and character. Not only does he possess the intelligence and technical ability to control the game from the middle, but arguably his greatest characteristic is his tenacity and desire to win.”

The new El Paso soccer team has nine players on the roster, with more expected to be announced soon, the release said.
