Chivas USA lands scoring star Calvert
[HOMEGROWN WATCH] Chivas USA signed Caleb Calvert, the leading scorer in the 2013-14 Development Academy's under-15/16 age
group, making the 16-year-old forward the youngest player to sign as a homegrown player with the MLS club.
Calvert, whose is known to his teammates as "Rooney," led the nation with 22
goals. He has been a part of Chivas USA’s Youth Academy for over two years. He joined the Chivas USA reserve team for its Reserve League against the Seattle Sounders and scored in the 2-1
Marco Delgado, who is now starting for the Goats, was two months older when he signed with Chivas USA last year.
”Caleb Calvert is a very talented player whose development in the Academy we’ve been following for a long time,” said Chivas USA director of soccer Francisco Palencia. “He’s a player with very good movement in the entire field and a great finisher inside the box. I believe he has in him all the requirements we need
in a forward at Chivas USA."
