Apollo is Boca Raton FC’s lovable mascot. His story is much more interesting than that of your average monkey. Born at the Kennedy Space Center, Apollo grew up with one love, lacrosse. Apollo was the best monkey lacrosse player in the entire United States and eventually was signed by the Florida Launch, a team that played in Major League Lacrosse.

Apollo had five successful seasons with the Launch, but in April of 2019, the league closed the club leaving Apollo without a team.

Not sure what he would do with his life, Apollo remembered that great-grandfather Albert once told him of a tale that his extended family had moved to Brazil to play soccer among the natives. And so, Apollo packed his bags and moved to Brazil to find his extedend family.

Apollo found his family, and to his surprise, they weren’t just good at soccer, they were great. His cousins taught him the ways of soccer and soon enough, Apollo was out there with his family playing the beautiful game.

After returning to Florida, Apollo looked for the perfect team to play for and found out about Boca Raton FC through mutual friends. Boca Raton FC signed Apollo to a 5-year deal and has been enjoying his time with the club.
