Article Written by Sheldon Shealer
Published: May 3, 2017

More than 650 fall- and winter-playing high school boys players made the cut for the Fall TeamSnap All-America Watch ListWinter TeamSnap All-America Watch List and  the Spring TeamSnap All-America Watch List

Players, through coaches recommendations and TopDrawerSoccer staff observations, will be added each week to the list as performances warrant. The only players that will be removed from the list will be athletes who are no longer playing high school soccer or sustain a season-ending injury that will take them out of all-state consideration.

The TeamSnap All-America teams are not announced until the end of the school year. 

Complete list of TeamSnap All-America Update articles.

Here are recent performances and updates from players on the TeamSnap All-America Watch Lists:

BOYS

* F Jack Finocchiaro, Omaha Westside (Neb.), Sr.: The Bellevue signee leads the team in points on 12 goals and seven assists. Westside is 14-2 and ranked No. 1 in Nebraska. Finocchiaro was an all-state selection last year.

* M Jose Hernandez, Indian Springs (Calif.), Sr.: Hernandez earned San Bernardino Sun Player of the Year honors after a season with 24 goals and 21 assists. Historically a finisher, Hernandez moved into more of playmaking role for the team this season. He plays club for FC Golden State and is leaning toward committing to a local NCAA Division II program. 

* F Omar Hernandez, Dalton (Ga.), So.: For the second straight week, a Dalton player makes the list. This time's it's up-and-coming star Omar Hernandez, who had three goals and two assists in Dalton's playoff win last week.

* M Quinn McNeill, J.L. Mann (S.C.), Sr.: McNeill, a Clemson signee, has scored 27 goals this year as J.L. Mann has rolled up a 14-3-1 record. J.L. Mann won a bracket title at the Smoky Mountain Cup, where McNeill was named to the all-tournament team. The team was ranked among the nation's elite until a couple of head-scratching defeats to league opponents. J.L. Mann will be a dangerous out in the South Carolina playoffs, and a victory in its next postseason game will mean it has defeated all three teams to which it also has lost this season.

* M Jose Torres, Montclair (Calif.), Sr.: The JuCo-bound Torres had a breakout season, scoring 26 goals, contributing 21 assists and earning the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin Player of the Year honors. Torres spent his first two-and-a-half years at Montclair on the JV team before a varsity call-up last season. His play helped Montclair from an eight-win team in 2015-16 to a 27-2-1 team during the 2016-17 season.

NOTE: The fall All-America watch list includes only players from high school teams that compete during the fall season. The inaugural Winter All-America watch list was released in November and includes players from the seven winter-playing states, and the inaugural Spring All-America watch list was released in February.
