Youth: Four Chargers named to U.S. Academy Select rosters

U.S. Under-17 team members Atsouh Ayah and Tarik Salkicic won’t be the only local players in Phoenix this weekend as four members of the Clearwater Chargers have been selected to train and play in the U.S. Development Academy Winter Showcase as members of Academy Select Teams.

Defenders Ben Sweat (Palm Harbor) and Korey Veeder (Dixie Hollins) have been named to the 1991-92 squad, while midfielder Kevin Pahl (Lakeland Jenkins) is on the 1993 Select #2 squad and defender Kendall Crouse (Lakeland Jenkins) is on the 1993 Select #4 squad.

Each Select squad will play one of the top Academy clubs over the three-day event, with the 91-92 squad containing Sweat and Veeder facing the 1993 Select #1 squad on Sunday.

Both the Chargers Under-18 and Under-16 Academy teams will also be competing at the event, with both sides playing three games in three days beginning on Saturday against the Met Oval from New York. The Chargers will also face the Dallas Texans and New York Red Bulls to round out the weekend.
