The LA Galaxy announced the initial 17-player roster for their reserve side, LA Galaxy II, with the 2022 USL Championship season just over a week away.
12 players will be returning, including 2021 top scorer Preston Judd, longtime goalkeeper Eric Lopez and fellow GK Alan Solorio and promising defender Josh Drack.
Meanwhile, there are five newcomers to the squad. Two are 2022 draft picks — midfielder Callum Johnson and defender Chandler Vaughn — and the other three have USL and in one case, MLS experience. Forward Michael Salazar has been a “tweener” between the divisions for years, featuring for the Montreal Impact, Houston Dynamo, their reserve teams, Ottawa Fury and most recently, for Memphis 901 FC.
