U.S. Soccer hosted a YNT Regional Identification Center in Philadelphia on April 14. U.S. Soccer had 60 players initially called into the one-day camp, which is used as a scouting platform for the Youth National Teams. The player were identified by Youth National Team scouts for the opportunity to train and play against the best talent in the area. 

Gonzalo Segares, Cris de Silva, Danny Cepero, Greg Andrulis, and Rob Irvine were the staff for this center. 

TopDrawerSoccer saw a copy of the original roster for the event. Obviously, players like Quinn Sullivan, who played for Philadelphia Union in the Concacaf Champions League game that night. From the initial roster, Union had nine players called into the 2004/2005 group, and 10 players called into the 2006/2007 group. D.C. United and New York Red Bulls each had 15 players called in between the two groups. 

There are a number of notable names in this training ID center. Former New York Red Bulls academy midfielder Kenan Hot is listed as unattached on the roster. Former Philadelphia Union academy standout Aaron Heard is on the 2006/2007 roster and listed as unattached. 

The aforementioned Quinn Sullivan’s younger brother Cavan Sullivan is on the roster for the 2006/2007 age group, which is especially noteworthy considering he was born in 2009. 

U.S. Soccer is upholding the highest standards for player and coach safety during these Talent Identification events. Parent and spectator attendance is strictly prohibited.
