Caleb Calvert was the 8th pick in today dispersal draft of the former Chivas USA franchise. I know what you’re thinking, “another young player”. This one with very little experience at just 18 years old, besides his time with the Chivas USA Reserves and some time with the U-16 US Soccer Academy team. Hopefully he will get the necessary training and development to be a great addition to the team. Calvert was the first homegrown player signed by Chivas USA at the age of 16 and did appear in the Homegrown game during the all-star week this season in Portland, but has yet to see any playing time with the first team during his time with Chivas USA. Overall, not a bad pick up by the Rapids if we’re talking about the future of the franchise. The Rapids need someone to come in right now and make a difference going into 2015.
