ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- New Mexico United added more local talent to its roster.
Alex Touche, a graduate of Albuquerque Academy, is joining the club after a decorated college career at the University of Pennsylvania.
Touché enters his rookie season in the USL with some great college experience under his belt. He was the 2019 Ivy League defensive player of the year, first team selection in 2018.
Touche was born in London before making Albuquerque home at ten years old.
"Being home with friends and family is going to be amazing reconnecting with some old friends that I haven't had the opportunity to see lately, and also my old coaches they were big influences on me and being able to have this opportunity," he said.
