this is another example of the great strides taken in helping our players reach the next level of soccer," Sporting KC Manager Peter Vermes said. "Jon Parry and
his staff have done a tremendous job in the development of Erik Palmer-Brown and we are excited to watch his growth within Sporting Kansas City."
Palmer-Brown joined the U.S. U-17 residency program for the spring 2013 semester and played for the U.S. U-16s at the Caspian Cup and U-17s, who won an international tournament in Japan

owe a lot to my family, my coaches and my teammates for helping me reach this point."
