Fehr's parents are traveling the 7,000 miles from Tokyo to Mexico
In 2010 while only 16 years old, Fehr found his way onto the U.S. Youth National Team radar. H was invited to a training camp with the U.S. U-17 MNT in Bradenton last summer. After a strong performance during the camp he was invited into Resdiency full time. Just a few weeks later he was back living in the U.S.
At the end of fourth grade, Fehr was invited to try out for Tokyo Verdy 1969, a club that had moved to Tokyo about the same time as Fehr and his family. There were more than 300 kids at that tryout, and three, including Fehr, were selected to join the club’s academy system. The young Swiss/American/Japanese defender was ready to make his move. Every day after school, Fehr traveled to train with Verdy and wouldn’t set home until late at night to begin his homework.
