[FALL 2012] The U.S. under-17 men’s national team residency roster for the 2012 fall semester includes 31 players. It's the first class picked by U-17 head coach Richie Williams since he replaced Wilmer Cabrera last winter.

Only one half of Cabrera's initial 32-player class from a year ago and 20 of the 31 players from the spring class are still in Bradenton.

Eleven new players join the roster for the semester including four born in 1997: Sebastian Elney, Malcolm Jones, Peter Schropp and Ben Swanson. In total, six players were born in 1997, while the remaining 25 were born in 1996.

Chivas USA and the New York Red Bulls lead all clubs with three players each from their academy program in residency.

“We think we’ve assembled a very strong roster and we look forward to working with all the players coming back and the new players coming in this semester,” said Williams, a former Red Bulls assistant coach. “We hope to continue to develop the players both individually and collectively so we can be successful on the field.”

U.S. Under-17 Residency Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Jeff Caldwell (North Carolina Fusion; Todd, N.C.), Paul Christensen (Seattle Sounders FC; Woodinville, Wash.), Evan Louro (New York Red Bulls; South River, N.J.)
DEFENDERS (12): Adonis Amaya (Chivas USA; Westminster, Calif.), Bryce Cregan (PA Classics; Dallastown, Pa.), Conor Donovan (North Carolina Alliance; Fuquay Varina, N.C.), Malcolm Jones (Chivas USA; Chino Hills, Calif.), Elijah Martin (Cal Odyssey; Fresno, Calif.), Jorge Miranda (Real So Cal; Van Nuys, Calif.), Shaquell Moore (Cobb FC; Powder Springs, Ga.), Tommy Redding (FC America Premier; Oviedo, Fla.), John Requejo Jr. (Real So Cal; Carpinteria, Calif.), Gonzalo Rolon (Central California Blues; Bakersfield, Calif.), Peter Schropp (Omaha FC; Omaha, Neb.), Tyler Turner (South Central Premier; West Haven, Conn.)
MIDFIELDERS (7): Mukwelle Akale (Minnesota Thunder; Minneapolis, Minn.), Junior Flores (McLean Youth Soccer; Manassas Park, Va.), Angel Heredia (San Jose Earthquakes; San Jose, Calif.), Guyllain Kabala (New England Revolution; Manchester, N.H.), Christopher Lema (New York Red Bulls; Ridgefield, N.J.), Rolando Munoz (LA Galaxy; Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.), Ben Swanson (Columbus Crew Soccer Academy; Grove City, Ohio)
FORWARDS (9): Corey Baird (San Diego Surf; Escondido, Calif.), Sebastian Elney (Boca United; Lake Worth, Fla.), Bradford Jamieson (Chivas USA; Los Angeles, Calif.), Brian Pacheco (Pateadores; Anaheim, Calif.), Dalton Pando (San Juan Soccer Club; Shingle Springs, Calif.), Rubio Rubin (Westside Metros; Beaverton, Ore.), Ahinga Selemani (CSA Wolves; Ann Arbor, Mich.), Wesley Wade (New York Red Bulls; South Orange, N.J.), Alan Winn (Solar Chelsea FC; Garland, Texas)

    Happy for all the players who had and continue to have this wonder opportunity. Good luck to all of them!!! Title could have read "Williams Replaces Half of Cabrera Residency Players" Maybe, just maybe USSF is changing the type of players they bring into national camps at all ages as well as residency. Is there hope USSF is now putting more emphasis on technique over the early bloomers athleticism? Its easy to pick the 14 yr old that should be shaving as he runs circle around the smaller technical players. But by the time they reach the U17 WC, the smaller technical player has matured physically with skill while the player who relied on athleticism and was selected early did not develop the required skill set. Good job Coach Williams! Player pool changes at all level seem to have occurred. This group of players will be looked upon to win GOLD at the 2018 Olympics.
