LA are coming to Colorado this weekend, Beckham has been confirmed and tickets are selling well because of it apparently. Looks like he is still good to pull a crowd. Id love to go to this game, big tailgate planned.

Well probably get beaten but right now, I would say we are better than Galaxy but we just decided to not know how to attack. Passed the ball great the last game and did well till the final third of the pitch then we didnt shoot.

Rapids sign Boulder's Shane O'Neill as Homegrown player
18-year-old Fairview HS grad and Ireland native scored 10 goals with Rapids U-18s

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (Tuesday, June 19, 2012) – The Colorado Rapids announced on Tuesday that the club has signed Boulder’s Shane O’Neill, a midfielder from the Rapids Academy, as a Homegrown Player. O’Neill, born in Ireland and a resident of Boulder since 2002, first played with the Rapids Academy in 2009 and has 10 goals in 15 matches with the Rapids U-18 Team this season. Per league and team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Pareja on what O'Neill brings

Media access for quotes and photos will take place following Tuesday morning’s practice at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. O’Neill, along with Rapids Technical Director Paul Bravo, Head Coach Oscar Pareja, and Academy Director Brian Crookham will all be present. Practice begins at 10:00 a.m. on Field 20, with media access running from approximately 11:15-12:15.

O’Neill, 18, attended Fairview High School in Boulder and was named Colorado’s 2011 Gatorade Boys Soccer Player of the Year, as well as earning MVP honors in the 2011 High School All-American Soccer Game. He was also a standout basketball player at Fairview, earning BoCoPreps.com Player of the Year honors this past winter. At 6’2”, 190 pounds, O’Neill has played as both a midfielder and a forward in soccer, and his 10 goals for the Rapids U-18’s this season led the team. He has been training with the Rapids first team throughout 2012, and has played in four Reserve Team matches this season, including playing the full 90 minutes in a 3-1 win over Sporting Kansas City on June 9.

Academy Director Crookham on O'Neills progress

Born in Midleton, Ireland, O’Neill moved to the United States when he was one year old, and he has dual citizenship in the United States and Ireland. He had planned on playing soccer at the University of Virginia this fall, but instead will stay in Colorado and is available for selection with the first team immediately. O’Neill is the second Homegrown Player – a roster designation that allows MLS clubs to sign players from their youth system to contracts that do not count against the salary cap – to be signed by the Rapids, following Davy Armstrong of Aurora, who joined Colorado’s first team on August 16, 2010.

The Rapids host the San Jose Earthquakes this Wednesday, June 20 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City.

Name: Shane Edward O’Neill

Number: 36

Position: Midfielder

Born: September 2, 1993 in Midleton, Ireland

Hometown: Boulder, Colo.

Citizenship: USA, Ireland

Height: 6-2
