Phoenix Rising opened its preseason camp Sunday with three players who made the cut during open tryouts a week earlier:
- Skylar Odle, a 17-year-old goalkeeper who’s played with the U.S. Youth Soccer’s Blackhawks team in Scottsdale.
- Munachi Offor, a forward who played for Grand Canyon University’s club team during the 2021-22 season.
- Adrian Thomas, a goalkeeper who played for the United Premier Soccer League team Olympians FC in El Mirage.
1 big opportunity: If any players from tryouts shine during the preseason, they could end up on the regular season roster.
- Don’t say it can’t happen: Zac Lubin became the team’s starting goalkeeper in 2019 and 2020 after impressing coaches during tryouts.
What’s next: Phoenix Rising’s regular season begins March 11 with a road game against the Charleston Battery in South Carolina.
