    There is a player that should definitely be on this roster, and Montoya should know about her. #4 on Castro Valley United GU16: There seems to be so little real quality at this age, and I rarely see a real difference-maker. I watched her take apart a very good Deanza midfield at a recent tournament. Fans of the game always say, "I know this great player", and the pundits uniformly discount these claims. Well, this girl is just hardwired differently, and while very raw, has the makings of a really top midfielder. I have no idea who she is, but she's the real deal.
