U-14 BNT Heads to Guadalajara for Lone International Trip of 2010
CHICAGO (Jan. 11, 2009) -- U.S. Under-14 Boy’s National Team head coach Manny Schellscheidt will lead 36 players to Guadalajara, Mexico, from Jan. 17-24 for the team’s only international trip of 2010. The roster is made up exclusively of players born in 1996, an age group that began training with Schellscheidt in November last year.
Returning from the team’s trip to Disney World last fall are 28 players who competed at a U.S. Youth Soccer event. In Guadalajara, Schellscheidt will split the team in two to compete against local youth sides and train every day.
The roster includes 14 players who play for Development Academy clubs, but only three players are part of the Development Academy system, playing against older players born mostly in 1994: Vernon Bailey (FC Dallas Juniors), Emerson Hyndman (FC Dallas Juniors) and Elijah Martin (Cal Odyssey).
