    I don't know who wrote this article, but it stated that 3 MLS players are on the U20 team. I think you should have read what you wrote. Under midfielders you have a DC United player by the name of Conor Shanofsky---that should make 4 MLS players in the USA U20 team. You need proofreaders. I think. Have a nice day. Editor's Note: As indicated, Conor Shanosky is on D.C. United's academy team, not its pro team. He will play at George Mason in the fall.
