Colorado Springs, CO (March 6, 2019) – The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC announced today the club has signed Andre Rawls and Matt Hundley on loan from the Colorado Rapids, pending USL Championship, MLS, and USSF approval.
Per the Right of Recall incorporated in the loan agreement, the Rapids retain the right to recall Rawls and Hundley at any point during the MLS regular season, subject to MLS roster compliance guidelines.
"Andre is a big addition as a loan player from the Rapids to the squad. He brings experience and he had a lot of success last season on loan to Orange County," said Switchbacks Head Coach, Steve Trittschuh. "He has settled in great with the team and we expect a lot out of him."
Rawls was a member of New York City FC (MLS) last year but he spent the entire season on loan to Orange County SC of the USL Championship. The 27-year-old keeper led Orange County to the Western Conference Championship of the 2018 USL Cup Playoffs with two clean sheets in three games, tied for the league lead in the playoffs. Rawls joined the Colorado Rapids after being selected third in the 2018 Re-Entry Draft on December 14, 2018.
