CHICAGO (March 3, 2016) – The U.S. Paralympic National Team will head to Chula Vista, California for its second camp of 2016 from March 3-9.
Head coach Stuart Sharp named a 16-player roster, including 2015 U.S. Soccer’s Disabled Player of the Year Kevin Hensley. Defenders Steven Bohlemann and Gregory Brigman and midfielder Logan Konkol enter their first Paralympic camp.
"I am delighted with the way things are progressing this year, and we have really stepped up from our performances at the 2015 World Championships,” Sharp said. “The squad has also recently received a boost after seeing some of our players with long-term injuries returning to full training. Taking this into account, the addition of some new faces and our current rate of progress, we are certainly on track to where we should be at this point on the build up to Rio 2016."
The PNT will play in the 2016 Pre-Paralympic tournament in Spain at the end of April in final preparation to prepare for the Olympic Games in Rio.
