More than 650 fall- and winter-playing high school boys players made the cut for the Fall TeamSnap All-America Watch List, Winter 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.
Here are recent performances and updates from players on the TeamSnap All-America Watch Lists:
* F Stefano Dellarosa, [Germantown Houston tn-m] (Tenn.), Jr.: Dellarosa has factored in six goals over Houston's last three matches with four scores and a pair of assists. While Houston has won each contest handling, the timing of Dellarosa's scores have launched the team to victory. He had the opening goal in a win over Collierville, the second and third goals to open up a win over St. George's and the first three goals in a victory over Southwind.
* F Jose Ortiz, Sam Houston (Arlington, Texas), Fr.: Ortiz was named the Fort Worth Star-Telegram Player of the Year after heling Sam Houston to a Texas 6A state runner-up finish. The Solar Chelsea club player finished with 30 goals and eight assists, and also was named the District 4-6A MVP.
* D Dean Sinatra, J.L. Mann (S.C.), Sr.: Sintara has contributed five goals and seven assists while playing defender for state finalist J.L. Mann. Mann takes on Wando (S.C.) in the state final this weekend. Sinatra, who has signed with Wofford, was named to the South Carolina Class 5A all-state team.
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.
