[AWARDS] For the second year in a row, Arsenal FC's Raul Mendiola earned the Development Academy U-15/16 Player of the Year award. For the Development Academy Starting XI, Coach of the Year and All-Conference honors ...

Mendiola played in 32 games for Arsenal, spending time with both the U-15/16 team and the U-17/18 team. He contributed 14 goals in the SoCal Division.
