PlayersRosterSeasonTornadoes Sign Angel ‘Chomo’ Rivera Again for Next Season!

October 18, 20210

Big news! The Dallas Tornadoes look to sign middle-blocker Angel ‘Chomo’ Rivera once again for the entire 2022 season after his appearance at last year’s event two in Atlantic City. In the Liga de Voleibol Superior Masculino, the Puerto Rican National player has scored double-digit points almost every match. Already his team, the Changos de Naranjitos, is off to a strong start as they have hopped back and forth from 1st to 2nd through the first month of competition, currently at 7-3.

“I’m looking forward to representing the Dallas Tornadoes in the upcoming 2022 Season. I’ve worked hard daily to improve my skills as I want to establish myself as a force to be reckoned with in the LVSM and the NVA. My goal is to produce for my teams and help win championships for both clubs this year.” – Angel “Chomo” Rivera.

His success comes after seven years of living out his dreams as a professional athlete as he joined the LVSM as a rookie in 2013. He began with the Indios de Mayagüez from 2013-2016 until he was traded to the Changos de Naranjito from 2017-present. Angel has also played for the Puerto Rico National Team in 2018, competing in the U21 NORCECA Championships in Habana, Cuba. Angel then represented his country in Winnipeg, Canada, for the 2019 NORCECA Men’s Continental Championship for Olympic qualification.

“I think the NVA is a solid league to get exposure on a global scale. The level of play helps all athletes compete against top guys in the country. Also, the league structure is very organized. They treat the players amazing, making it an honor for athletes to represent the league. I hope we can continue to grow the NVA and, more importantly, the sport of Volleyball.” – Angel “Chomo” Rivera.

With the Changos, Angel is also playing by IE Matadors all-star libero, Jose Mulero, who ranked 10th in the NVA last season for total digs at 68. Together they look to return the trophy home to Naranjito, adding another gold medal to their already impressive count of 23 titles. Their championship record has 14 more than the next highest team. But they need to take down four-year reigning champs, the Guaynabo Mets before that dream can become a reality.

Angel will have a chance to do so this Friday, October, 22 as the team faces the 1st place Guaynabo Mets and the Utah Stingers OH Inovel Romero and Oppo Jorge Mencia.
