Bio

Raheem Edwards

Raheem Edwards... speaks English... soccer family (brother Zachary Gowlett)... he was six years old when he started playing soccer at Erin Mills SC...

said Edwards in 2017, “my childhood was great; I was playing for Erin Mills SC and I grew up playing against guys like Cyle Larin and Jordan Hamilton; it was just the greatest memories of all time: just being young and loving the sport so much is so awesome”... also said Edwards in 2017, “there’s always fun in the game, but I was always driven to be the best. The household that I grew up in was very competitive, so that was a part of me by nature. My older brother played soccer and I always wanted to prove that I was better than him. He always pushed me to be a better player.”

said Edwards in 2017, “I remember when I was a teenager and I was seeing other players get called into the national team, I wanted to get called in so badly, but I wasn’t known back then as a player that could represent our country... when I got the chance to represent Canada, I was over the moon; when I got my first cap, it was amazing; it was something that I will cherish forever”...

said general manager Tim Bezbatchenko after Edwards signed with Toronto FC in 2017, “Raheem has faced every challenge head on and continues to excel with the opportunities placed in front of him”... said Edwards in 2017, “the whole (Toronto FC) organisation, they gave me the confidence; last season in USL, Jason Bent, Chris Pozniak, did a great job of grooming me right”...
