Season Review

2019 Rapids Report Card: Sam Raben

ROLEUtility Defender
KEY 2019 STATS345 USL Minutes, 0 MLS appearances

Season in a Sentence

The nascent homegrown signing played all 90 minutes against Arsenal but was otherwise absent from the field in 2019 for the Rapids.

Performance Review

Raben’s only competitive minutes during the year came in three starts and five appearances off the bench for the Switchbacks in USL. Unfortunately, the Greenwood Village native wasn’t able to convince the Rapids to tack on any extra time to his one year deal.

Future Expectations

Raben’s departure doesn’t help the look of Colorado’s homegrown history, but his swift exit was probably foretold by his short contract. The 21-year-old passed through the end-of-year waiver drafts and is now free to pursue opportunities elsewhere.
