Hello Colorado Rapids fans! This week on Holding The High Line, it’s MLS SuperDraft Day! Rabbi and Red recap how the Colorado Rapids moved up to draft Philip Mayaka. Mark gives us the skinny on what Mayaka was like at Clemson. Matt gets on the phone with him to get to know him better. We try to make sense of why the Pids selected him and also didn’t pick anyone else at the draft.
Holding The High Line: MLS SuperDraft Pick Philip Mayaka
Then we get into Ask HTHL, making sense of the Michael Barrios trade, talking Rapids SuperDraft history, and merch. We hope you enjoy this episode and the Philip Mayaka interview.
