[NTC CAMP] The U.S. under-15 boys national team is at the U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center in Carson, Calif., for the last training camp before players born in 1998 are eligible for the U-17 age group.

    East coast, West coast, repeat. Something is flawed with US Soccer's player identification process when only twos player on this team are from the Midwest, and one of them (Rice) has been in the program for a while. In the Northern Illinois Soccer League alone, which covers the greater Chicago area, there are 17,000 players. Add in the rest of the Midwest, and how is it possible that we have so little representation from this part of the country?

    17 of the players picked do not play Academy. I would love to be a fly on the wall(or pitch)to watch the clubs these non acadedmy kids play for. How do these kids get noticed AND followed to determine the criteria for selectng them for a trip to Mexico? How do these clubs; non-academy; support such fantastic players?

    To J. Pratt and Teresa: This is NOTHING new at all in the overall selection processes, as I counted at least 12 from the far-far-wild-west i.e. the golden State of California, several from SoCal. The entire selection processes is corrupt to the core, but for sure please do not be misled when the US Soccer/MLS/Academy gurus tell you that they did their very best, laughable at best, pathetic at worst. As some readers may have noted, I've been there/done that, and it doesn't stop because it will be repeated time and again. So what is the solution? Probably a tiny-small one, but it will be given short end of the stick. Keep on pluggin though, it remains to bee seen what - if anything - will be done to correct this mess.
