Ibsen Ojeda Ayala

Ibsen Ojeda Ayala is a third-year player on the SOCO Rapids Unified team. The nineteen-year-old West High School (Denver) graduate wants to build on his continued physical, social, mental and emotional growth this season.

Being part of the SOCO Rapids Unified squad has allowed him to experience many joys, especially after scoring a hat trick (three goals) in one game against the Special Olympics Oregon/Portland Timbers in Portland last year.

Outside of soccer, he likes to play guitar, listen to music and spend time with his family.

Ojeda Ayala’s all-time favorite Rapids players are Connor Casey, Brian Mullan and Vicente Sanchez.
