Started out the show this week talking through news that’s dropped since last time. Big rumor that’s surfaced is that RSL are in the running for Jesus Duenas who is currently playing for Tigres in Mexico. This is big news considering we’ve been focusing a lot of our efforts on Jorquera lately. Seems like his injury might have been a little bit worse than we anticipated but it could also be that Duenas is just a better pick/deal.
Really hoping for more news about that in the coming days.
The rest of the show we spent time talking with former Monarchs and newly minted RSL player Taylor Peay this weekend. Taylor grew up in the Salt Lake area, graduating from Brighton High School, and is what we all hope to see more of in the future — local kids making it to the first team. He’s an RSL fan and would go to games growing up, dreaming of one day playing at Rio Tinto and wearing the claret and cobalt. Really great to talk to him and pick his brain a little bit.
