COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — The Colorado Rapids have announced the signing of defender Jackson Travis to a four-year Homegrown Player contract with two club options.

The Rapids said Travis, 18, is the 16th player in Rapids history to sign a Homegrown deal with the team.

"We’re delighted to sign a promising young talent like Jackson to a Homegrown Player deal," said Pádraig Smith, Executive VP & General Manager.

We look forward to seeing him continue to develop and contribute to our club."

A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Travis first joined the Rapids Academy in August 2020 and began his career with the club’s U-17 Academy team.
