Posted on 13 April 2010 by ASN Staff

The U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team will come together for a training camp from April 25-May 2 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. Head coach Mike Matkovich has named 24 players who will train twice daily and compete against local club teams during the week. The team will also attend the Los Angeles Galaxy match against the Philadelphia Union on May 1. Matkovich’s roster includes 17 players currently playing in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy plus another player, Kyle Emerson, who has moved on from Texas SC DTH to Wake Forest. The remaining six players – Dustin Corea, Andrew Craven, Luis Gil, Stefan Jerome, Emilio Orozco and Eriq Zavaleta – were all part of the U.S. Soccer U-17 Men’s National Team Residency Program in 2009. Gil, who signed with Real Salt Lake of Major League Soccer before the 2010 season, is the lone professional player on the roster.

    Extremely interesting blog post. Your post is extremely interesting. I enjoyed this article. This post is wonderful! I have to say that after continually reading bad as in, same old material, little quality content, etc. blog posts on other sites, it’s good to actually read something that has some thought put into it. It’s a pleasure to read quality blog posts, especially after continually seeing rehashed %$!# that writers and bloggers are throwing out nowadays. It’s always nice when I come across content that actually has value, I’ve been seeing a ton of subpar writing attempts recently. Anyhow, thanks again and I’ll check back often to see what else you have to offer. I’ll check back in the future to see what else you have up your sleeve. Keep up the terrific work! BTW, I like your site design, but your header image was only loading half way for me. P.S. Your header is messed up a bit in IE. The problem could be on my end but I thought you might want to look into that.
