Kareem Yearwood, Max Touloute, and newest signee Angel Rivillo will join the organization for the remaining 8 regular season games.
Kareem Yearwood, a Sou Sou Lands, Trinidad and Tobago Native, joined the Wings just weeks ago after first spending time on the teams practice squad. A rookie in the MISL, Yearwood played his college soccer at the College of Charleston before spending time with FC Jacksonville Destroyers. Yearwood has joined the Wings in the Midfielder/Forward position.
Max Touloute, a Native to Haiti, was a four-year player for the IPFW Mastodons prior to joining the Wings. Touloute solidified his name in the IPFW history book with 32 goals, 14 assists, 218 shots and five game-winning goals. He competed in 67 career games for the team. In 2011, Touloute was named the Summit League Offensive Player of the Year, while helping IPFW qualify for the league tournament for the first time in program history. In the semifinal round against Oral Roberts, he netted IPFW's first goal nine seconds into the contest. It was the second fastest goal in NCAA history and the quickest in league tournament history.
Angle Rivillo, a Toulouse, France Native, no doubly has the longest resume of the three new signees, and has no short list of accomplishments. Rivillo has won two National Championships in his career; one with the Milwaukee Rampage in 2002 (A-League Champions), and one with the Milwaukee Wave of the MISL in 2005. Angle was also an All-American Scholar Athlete at Creighton University (1999-2000), and winner of the A-League 2002 Goal of the Year Award. Rivillo’s full playing career includes time spent with:

With the addition of three new players for the final eight games of the regular season, Wings Head Coach LeBaron Hollimon has one goal on his mind. “Playoffs. There’s no doubt in my mind that this team is still working hard to be in the playoff hunt. With the loss of Freddy (Moojen, Knee) and other nagging injuries, we will need other guys to step up and fill roles. I firmly believe all three of these men will be great additions to help this team accomplish that goal.”
The Wichita Wings will take on the Rochester Lancers this Saturday, February 4th in a game that may see strong playing time out of all three new players.
