History

Summer 2010
The club’s inaugural season was in Summer 2010, where they posted a very average 4-4-0 regular seaons record to earn 7th Place in the 14-team PASL Men’s B1 Division.  The club advanced to the 8-team playoffs, but was eliminated in the first round by eventual runner-up, SGV Crew.

In August 2010, in just its second game, the club made Facebook headlines with a season-ending injury to mediocre midfielder and RAfc player-coach Bryan Chenault, who tore both his ACL and meniscus during a botched goal-scoring effort/collison with the opposing goalkeeper.  Chenault made an unexpected return to the team in the Summer post-season, hobbling on for the final 2 minutes of a 3-0 loss.  The 36-year-old is currently attempting to play the Fall season without two major ligaments before undergoing invasive surgery in mid-December.  He is expected to return to full health for the Summer 2011 season, following six months of knee rehabilitation and sports-related anger management classes.

Formation/Style
RAfc usually plays a 2-3-1 formation with a withdrawn striker.  Real Average FC’s initial season was characterized by poor ball control, general lack of match fitness, laissez-faire attitude, and missing players, but was buoyed by outstanding goalkeeping by Steve “Bloody Knees” Weatherby and opportunistic, counter-attack goals by attacking trio Nic Bowers, Tommy Brockert and Ian Broucek, known by fans as “The Killer B’s”.  In its first season, the club took the following honors: Most Winded (in a game), Best Uniform, Best Logo and Most Likely to Improve.

Other founding players of RAfc include:
–defender Dan “The Rhino” Flores
–defender Casey Ryder
–defender/midfielder Mohammed “I haven’t eaten in 40 days, but I feel good” Choudhury
–midfielder Matt “I don’t feel so good. I had Eggs Benedict for breakfast like a half an hour ago” Goldman
–midfielder Dan “I don’t feel so good. I just had a huge burrito” Oh
–midfielder Colin Beswick

RAfc’s uniform sponsor for the season was Nike.
