    New entrant Andrija Novakovich plays for the Chicago Magic PSG Academy and with Rubin scored 3 goals in japan. He led the USSF Academy in goals per game with 1.16 per just ion front of Winn and Wade, not bad company. He played with Magic US Club teams since he was 12.

    Did Andrija play in any club in Wisconsin as well?? Or did he do all of his playing at Chicago Magic?

    Ric, I like it. Dont you guys find it strange that there is always a very heavy and very consistent ratio of selected players for our National team Camps from East Coast or California?? U14's are about 1/2 from California!! Overall you will notcie that California takes about 35% of Natiuonal Selections. 1 State!! East Coast States, mostly New Jersey, New York, Pensylvania, take about 25% overall.

    California is good and probably our best soccer state but every year close to the same ratio on every youth national team??? Really?? Does any other country show this consistency from certain regions?? I heard the reason is so successful now is because they took politics out of National selections. It used to be that wherever the head coach was from thatsd where most of the players elected came from. I heard Spain has always had the players to be at the top but politics would prevail. Now that they found a way to eliminate the politcis now they are kings. We should try that!!

    After further review, actually there are 5 from CA, not as many as that awesome red bulls soccer academy program that keeps churning top notch professional soccer players, but close. Good luck at Milk CUP!!!
