Rysen comes to the Fire having played with two strong programs after graduating from Tanque Verde High School in Tucson. Rysen played for the 7 Time national champions, Yavapai College and then went on to play for Grand Canyon University.

Rysen will bring an energetic style of play to the team. His rapid pace and movement will be a disruption for the opponent’s defense. Rysen will be able to create chances not only for him, but for the rest of the attack.


Welcome Giuseppe Ferace to Arizona Fire FC!
