Summer 2023 Evaluation
College coaches love Raio for his consistency and ability to do a little bit of everything. He erupted for 90 points as a sophomore this spring at Hills, then parlayed it into an outstanding summer where he and NLF No. 2 Gary Merrill (St. Anthony’s, N.Y.) gave defenses fits as an elite 1-2 punch in the Team 91 midfield. Raio moves really well and does an excellent job of creating separation to unleash a rocket of a shot. He’s also a solid and effective feeder from up top.
Defensively, he’s a willing and eager participant and easily runs by most in the open field. He also averaged 26 yards per catch on the football field as a sophomore, lending credence to his explosiveness.
Spring 2023 Evaluation
Like Seibel, Raio played his way into five-star status with an outstanding sophomore campaign this spring. He was the man for Half Hollow Hills’ offense, racking up an incredible 60 goals and 30 assists as a midfielder, including 11 hat tricks. Raio also played great defense and made his impact felt all over the field. A 6-foot, 170-pounder, Raio is a smooth athlete who looks like he’s gliding on the field. His athleticism helps separate him in a strong midfield class and will have college coaches salivating this summer.
