Posted by Staff Writer Eric Branch:
Sonoma Academy sophomore Kendall McIntosh has been selected as one of the 40 players from across the nation to be selected for the U.S. National Soccer Team’s U17 Residency Program in Bradenton, Florida.
The U.S. players live on campus at the IMG Academy in Bradenton and train in the morning under the guidance of Wilmer Cabrera and his assistant coaches. In the afternoon, the players attend classes at Bradenton Preparatory Academy.
Since its inception, 170 players have been through the full-time residency program, and more than 60 of those players have moved on to Major League Soccer or the professional leagues in Europe. Fifteen players have also registered at least one cap with the full Men’s National team, a list that includes Landon Donovan, Freddy Adu and DaMarcus Beasley.
