Dunny and I headed down to the Home Depot Center earlier this week to catch up with some friends and check out the U-18 National Team and possibly some future US soccer stars. The U-18’s were playing the Chivas reserves and between the college coaches, scouts and agents hanging around, there was a lot of interest in these young players. It really is amazing to see how far the sport has come in recent years, and this was a further reminder that the sport is well on its way. From the talent on the field to the interest that was shown to these young players, soccer in America is definitely changing and evolving all the time.
Seeing the youth national team playing brought back some memories for Dunny and I. In fact, Mooch Myernick was the first person to see Dunny and give him a look at the youth national team level. Here’s to you Mooch.
