    40% from 1 state. 25% from one other state. California is a top soccer state, I know, but 40%? New York Red Bulls always seem to have a BIG number of players on National Team. Am I missing something? Its either other big soccer states Like Illinois, for example, don't have a chance or are inferior talent wise as the rest of the USA. I don't think that's it.

    Luis Arreola ... good point! I know ODP (Olympic Development Program) is out there for all states but in may opinion it has just turned into a money pit for the wealthy ... too many really talented players are being let behind because of "play for pay soccer." Some really talented players in West Texas have to drive 350 to tryout for ODP and if they make it they have to drive 350 miles to every ODP practice. Sucks!
