San Salvador, El Salvador (September 29, 2011) – There exist many inspirational and motivational phrases that speak to people’s character, overcoming challenges, and dealing with adversity. But it’s not always easy to think of them off the top of your head. However, after spending the last three days with the Colorado Rapids in El Salvador, I will always remember seeing these traits right in front of me.

I’ll also remember the Case of the Missing Cleats, but that comes later.

Colorado Rapids Head Coach Gary Smith

On the team that is traveling to El Salvador:

You can see that there’s a cutting edge to the group. There’s four forwards in the group, and we have some experience in players like Tyrone Marshall, Wells Thompson, and Scott Palguta, who has played a decent role in the first team over the last two or three season.
