    It was nice to see Ashton Bennet from COASTAL CAROLINA, not Charlotte, was listed as an All-American candidate. I think this should be corrected. A little more respect is due for someone who has accomplished so much.

    I love the way this is setup. If the All American team represents a formation with a backup at each position (generally), then the proposed formation is 3 defenders, 3 mids, and 4 forwards. I'd watch that team for sure. From the old FIFA game days, the team is set on all out attack!
