BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS — Great news for soccer players in the Rio Grande Valley. Now there’s a chance for them to keep their talents close to home and continue playing at the next level without traveling too far.

Texas Southmost College is restarting its soccer program for the first time since 2011. They’ve been only recruiting kids from the Valley, so far have signed 21 women and 24 men– and there’s a possibility for more kids joining as walk-ons in the Fall.
