The Broncos are lead by tri-captains Brayan Delima, Jhonnathan Medina, and Guilherme Morias.
DeLima is a “very talented and skilled forward who has been part of the varsity team all 3 years (excluding COVID year no season),” said Coach Kramer, who added he will have a “major influence on the success of this year’s team.”
Medina. is a “very talented and forward who has been part of the varsity team all 3 years (excluding COVID year no season),” said Coach Kramer. “Jhonnathan has played a lot of club soccer while the high school season was shut down and his skills have advanced tremendously.”
