CHICAGO (Friday, Nov. 14, 2003) - Julian Valentin is back! The U.S. Under-17 Men's National Team defender entertained you from Finland during the U-17 World Championship and now he's ready to do it on a more consistent basis from his U.S. Soccer Residency dorm room in Bradenton, Fla., with the Valentine Chronicles. The newly christened co-captain is doing his best "Jules in Charge" impersonation with now 40 U-17 MNT players in Residency, which will surely make for some interesting stories. He'll fill you in with all the behind-the-scenes info on Residency life, from practice to games to the team's trips to what they actually do in elderly-dominated town of Bradenton. Read on for the first installment about the new group of Under-17s and their recent trip to France.
