Rapids Alum Bartlett Making Waves in South Africa

Good article today by MLS on Rapids Alumni Player Shaun Bartlett.

Bartlett, the South African native who starred up front for Colorado in the club's first 2 seasons of 1996 and 1997, finds himself 15 years later heavily involved with the sport in his home country, as they sit on the verge of hosting the world's largest event this summer.

Excerpted quote from the article:

"My humble appeal to all South Africans is that we must come together to support the national team and stop giving out a negative attitude towards Bafana," Bartlett recently told

"It is vital we start at the bottom and lay a solid foundation. Our goal is to produce players who will represent Bafana at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil."

Bartlett recorded 9 goals and 9 assists in 36 games played for the Rapids in '96 and '97.
