[FALL SEMESTER]U.S. under-17 national team coach Richie Williams has named the 28-player roster for the 2013 fall semester of the U-17 Residency Program in Bradenton, Fla., that began on Monday. The fall semester starts the new cycle for the players who will be vying to make the team that will attempt to qualify for the 2015 U-17 World Cup in Chile. The previous group was the first in residency history not to qualify.

The squad includes a core of 12 players from the U-15 team that finished third at the Copa Mexico de Naciones in Mexico City.

The age group is considered one of the deepest to come along in recent years, and several players have already moved abroad. Joe Gallardo Jr., who was the top scorer at the Copa Mexico de Naciones, is at Monterrey in Mexico, and Joshua Perez, nephew of former U.S. national team star and current U.S. under-14 head coach Hugo Perez, signed with Fiorentina.

Two players in residency earned starting XI honors in last season's Development Academy: Brian Zelaya of De Anza Force and Christian Pulisic of PA Classics. who has been linked with Dutch club PSV.

GOALKEEPERS (3): William Pulisic (Richmond Strikers; Mechanicsville, Va.), Abraham Romero (Golden State FC; Altadena, Calif.), Kevin Silva (PDA; Bethlehem, Pa.)
