Colorado Rapids sign 16-year-old forward Darren Yapi

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) The Colorado Rapids signed 16-year-old forward Darren Yapi to a five-year contract, the youngest player to sign a pro deal in the club's history.

The team announced the deal with the home-grown player Wednesday. It includes a club option for an addition season.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Yapi spent last season training with the Rapids first team along with the Colorado Springs Switchbacks, the club's affiliate in the second tier USL Championship. He signed a deal with the Switchbacks on July 31, leading to his pro debut on Aug. 1 at 15 years old. Yapi ended up earning Rapids Academy player of the year honors. (MORE)
