[USA U-15 BOYS] The U.S. under-15 national team went 1-2-1 against local Development Academy teams during its stay at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. It split with Chivas USA, tied Real So Cal and lost to the Los Angeles Galaxy. Raheem Taylor-Parkes had the game-winner in the Chivas USA victory. Taylor-Parkes, a freshman at Florida's Montverde Academy, recently played for Canada's U-17s and had before that a trial with Arsenal. He won the 2011 U-13 Super Y-League North American Finals with Brandon FC Flames.

-- Eight different players scored for Tony Lepore's U-15s, who were split into two teams for the games.

-- Joshua Perez, the nephew of former U.S. star and current U-14 national team coach Hugo Perez, had the lone goal against Chivas USA, his club team.

-- Haji Wright, a 6-foot-4 freshman, had one of the goals in the Galaxy win. He had played with the U-15s in the fall.

Jan. 16 Chivas USA 1-2 Perez
Jan. 16 Real So Cal 2-2 Arellano, Rice
Jan. 19 Chivas USA 3-2 Gaines, Coleman, Taylor-Parkes

    Same old same in my humble opinion. This kid is a freshman in High School and he is playing with u17 CNT. Obviously we have another case of an extremely early grower who at the moment shines over other kids as a man child. Im honestly tired of hearing about kids at this age who play for all these different teams... arsenal USBNT, Canada... just because they are lucky enough to have dual citizen ship. There are so many other technically gifted players that have not... will not... ever be asked to play for an overseas academy. Not because they are not good enough. They would actually love to have them. Do you know the first thing they are asked... do you have a EU passport or a granparent from Europe? If not.. they just work down the line. Lets talk about young Parks in a few years and see what happens. We have a bad habit in this country of promoting kids at this age group when they really have much more to prove. I keep hearing Joshua Perez pop up as well. Many people do not know that Joshua is Hugo Perez's nephew... Hugo is on of US soccers top guys. Like he is not going to get the call up. While we are on the subject. Look at Brian and Milan Iloski. There father runs San Diego Surf. The boys have both been invited to the national team recently and have both been placed on Nike's chance and younger brother will most likely make the Nike ID2 spain team. Guess what multi million dollar deal San Diego surf just made with Nike... In addition to logo placement all 800 players will be wearing soccorlogo/nike gear. Guess who's dad was pacing the sidelines at the ID2 tryout in Casa Grande and hobnobbing in the lounge in the evenings with the coaches... Iloski senior is gonna get his boys there. The boys are good players. Not great but pretty good. When you mix a decent soccer player with matters of circumstance in this country... we are starting to see that is the recipe for opportunity and exactly why our MNT struggles at the highest level.

    Wow!! That is very interesting. My son was at this Id2 camp in Casa Grande. This is really good info to know. I would hate to think that selection for something g like Id2 is bias or political.

    David, we do hype up players at too young of an age but sometimes it does work but in other sports like basketball where they seem to get it right more times than not. The difference is in who is looking and what we are looking for.

    David, there are more kids that come from fathers that run big clubs, don't think any of them made the spain trip. I fully understand the frustration there are mnay kids that should get a chance to display their skill and get furthered Id'd. Joshua Perez is the real deal, regardless of his relationship to Hugo Perez. He is a standout wherever he plays. I have personally seen him play before and he immediately impressed me.
