Chattanooga FC Adds Players Just Ahead Of NISA Legends Cup

CFC Faces Off With Los Angeles Force Tuesday Night

Monday, April 12, 2021

Chattanooga Football Club is strengthening its roster in advance of the 2021 spring season, signing defender Kaio DaSilva and Brett Jones to the club just as the NISA Legends Cup gets underway tomorrow. 

Kaio DaSilva is a 6’4” defender who excelled as a two sport athlete at UAlbany. In two seasons, DaSilva played in 34 matches for the Great Danes, starting 23 games, and netting six goals with six assists. 

“We are excited to welcome Kaio DaSilva to Chattanooga Football Club!” said Head Coach Peter Fuller. “We are looking for Kaio to strengthen our depth in the back. He has solid defensive instincts and excellent long passing quality.”

“I truly feel honored and blessed for the opportunity Chattanooga FC has provided to my family as I continue my footballing career at the next level” said Kaio. “In my short time in this city, I have witnessed a powerful sense of community and I am more than excited to play in front of the fans and people of Chattanooga.”

Brett Jones comes to the Scenic City from the west coast, where he recently played with Oregon State and UC San Diego. Jones started 39 games in three seasons for the Tritons, and he netted 18 goals with 7 assists.

“CFC is pleased to welcome Brett Jones” said Head Coach Peter Fuller. “He is a versatile forward who possesses the ability to get behind the defense with his pace! He can play equally well in a system that uses three forwards or two forwards.”

“I’m super excited to join Chattanooga FC” said Brett. “The environment that the team and the community has built here is second to none, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. I look forward to playing for CFC and helping the team succeed in the future.”

But let’s start with some numbers: a mere 3 percent of Americans of Latin-American descent use “Latinx” to describe themselves. This is based on a 2020 Pew Research poll of about 3,000 American Latinos. Those who want for “Latinx” to become the default say it’s preferable because it’s ... (click for more)
