WHY CHAFFIN CHOSE SANTA CLARA: “I chose Santa Clara because the campus size was perfect for me. I felt like I was going to be able to get around campus pretty easily and interact with the teachers. I wanted to go to a school that also had a great soccer program and excellent academics, which Santa Clara has both. It gives me the chance to not only play soccer for a great program but it also keeps me close to home in Washington. I also fell in love with the training facilities and Buck Shaw Stadium.”

COACH RAST ON CHAFFIN: “Yoshi, as he goes by, is a dynamic slashing player. He has a knack for getting behind players with the ball. There is a way he glides past guys that makes him fun to watch. Adding him to the attack will make it difficult for opponents to contain our group of forwards. The best part is he not not only set guys up to score but can finish as well.”
