EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14/CBS4) — El Paso Locomotive FC has signed Colombian right back Bryam Rebellon. During his youth and in the early days of his professional career, Rebellon played in Argentina and his home country of Colombia. Playing with Independiente Santa Fe in Colombia’s top division and then spending time with Club Atletico Sarmiento in Argentina led Rebellon to the United States where he joined LA Galaxy II in 2016. He appeared with the team 24 times and netted two goals.
In 2017, Rebellon joined Jacksonville Armada, the former club of El Paso Locomotive head coach Mark Lowry and teammates Derek Gebhard, Joshua Castellanos and Yuma. After a yearlong stint in Jacksonville, during which he made 21 appearances, Rebellon joined Swope Park Rangers, of the USL Championship for the 2018 season, and appeared in 26 matches.
“Bryam is another very intelligent footballer and an incredible athlete who possesses great technique” said Lowry. “He can play various positions, but over the past couple of years has really made the right back spot his home.
“What really sets Bryam apart though, is his character and work ethic. (He’s) a phenomenal worker who dedicates his life to being the best he can be on the field. I am looking forward to having another high-quality personality in our locker room.”
El Paso Locomotive FC plays the first match in its inaugural 2019 season on March 9, against OKC Energy FC at Southwest University Park at 7:30 p.m.
