EL PASO, TX - February 11, 2020 - El Paso Locomotive's Louis "Chapa" Herrera returns from a trial with MLS side Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC), who finished in first place in the Western Conference in 2019. The 23-year-old midfielder appeared for El Paso in 28 matches and netted one goal in his first professional season.

"I am very proud that Chapa had the opportunity to spend a week with LAFC, who on last season's form were the best team in MLS.

For that to be recognized is fully deserved and a is testament to Chapa and the culture we have created here in El Paso," said head coach Mark Lowry.
