Marcos Sotarello (Amherst, Mass.) recently made his first appearance for the Maryland Bobcats in the National Independent Soccer Association.
The 19-year-old midfielder, formerly of the Boston Bolts ECNL, also notched his first career assist in his substitute debut.
Sotarello arrived in Maryland after a two-year stint in Spain. His interest in playing abroad was sparked by traveling to Spain with the Bolts in 2019. Having impressed in the country already, and seeking more playing time throughout the pandemic, Sotarello made the jump to the International Development Academy in Valencia, Spain in 2020.
