Chivas USA youth player Chavez dies

CARSON, Calif. -- Julio Chavez, a defender and captain of Chivas USA's Under-18 team, has died in an auto accident. He was 19.

Chavez was killed on Monday night in Modesto, Calif., his hometown, the team said.

He attended the team's youth academy for three years.

Chavez, a native of Modesto, graduated from Birmingham High School in 2012, earning a scholarship to attend the Cal State-Los Angeles.

Chavez is survived by his parents, Francisco and Isabel Chavez, and four siblings: Francisco, Claudia, Rafael and Cecilia.

Chivas USA will honor the player's life by wearing black armbands with his name and number on them and hosting a moment of silence before the match against the Los Angeles Galaxy on Sunday.
