    First off, apologies for getting this up late. Finally I decided to get off my behind (maybe it was the Jordan Gruber sighting on the other thread that did it) and post this now to get a working document up on BigSoccer.

    Here's a first pass at the "Confirmed YA" list for 07/08. As usual, here is my lengthy list of disclaimers and excuses:

    -- An American playing soccer for a team located in another country is a Yank Abroad.
    -- Please contact me or post here with any and all corrections, additions, subtractions, etc.
    -- I post confirmed players only, which means I need to see something from a club, a player, a player agent or someone I trust before I add them to the full list. (I maintain confidentiality for any players or related parties who contact me directly to the degree that they wish.)
    -- That said, even if you only have a "lead" please post it here so we can try to track it down.
    -- I have another list of about 300 players I need to go through to really round things out and be complete. I'll do it as the season wears on. If anyone wants to help, please say so!

    I guess that's it for now. Thanks as always for the constant help of many, many people on BigSoccer and otherwise -- and most of all to the actual Yanks Abroad who make this fun and worthwhile.

    There are 110 names below. I estimate another 50-100 who are "out there" at this time, perhaps not even counting Canada-based MLS, USL and CSL players.

    Away we go!

    And Castillo barely beats Giallombardo and Gkionis as the most common Yank names Abroad.

    Seriously, great work Dave.

    Yes, I am probably low-balling it.

    I've got about 300 names of guys who "may" be playing somewhere now; another 50 or so who may be playing somewhere but may not be American; and then there are very possibly a good 50 Mexican-Americans playing on Mexican youth teams as we speak who will never get counted because it's hard to get good info.

    Plus, we'll see more players go this year I'm sure. Watch the teenage ranks for some interesting news soon.

    The hard part is confirming everyone, but I will do my best (with help, of course).

    Add to that the difficulty in locating player information in Africa, parts of Asia, and parts of South/Central America that is in a langauage we can understand or even available on the internet and things really get interesting.

    But I have faith you can do it.:D

    I'd be curious as to the confirmed totals from previous editions. The numbers appear be increasing. It would be interesting to see the year to year changes.

    Thank you so very much for doing this...
    I was actually just about to contact you and pretend like I wasn't being kinda naggy. I'm not sure if I could've pulled that off.

    This list makes it easy² to try and find listings for YA's on TV. (I'll be ""archiving"" as many or all of them this year)

    Hell, I can't even remember who's playing for Fulham anymore.

    Minor corrections:

    Ferrari -the final 'a' is missing in the team name: Sampdoria
    Rossi - the team name is with two 'r': Villarreal, and it plays in Spain, not Italy

    Seriously, is all you do post about Bernardo?
    I'm starting to believe the rumors that you are his mother or something.

    Not sure. Bayern Munich's youth team site is sorely lacking at the moment.

    His older brother Stefan, who played some with Leverkusen, is now a freshman at James Madison U. (and on the team).

    Just wanted to make sure people knew that whoever runs MLS Underground also is now putting together a YA list.

    His or her criteria are a little different from mine, but he does have some players I do/did not -- for instance, he already had Botero and also a GK named Herrera in El Salvador who I will look into.

    So, if he/she has good sources, maybe this will be something to keep an eye on.

    It looks like Christoph Drechsler of BSV Zschopautal in Germany may be a Yank.

    Kyle Davies birth year is 1989.
    Eric Lichaj birth year is 1988.

    What is the background of Morales? Doing a quick search brought up this from April, I think it is saying his high school won some school world championship in Chile.

    For those who remember reading about Gabe Provenza "back when," here's an article that may be of interest (written by his papa):

    OK, I can't deny it: My son has become a better fly fisherman than me.

    I've been fly-fishing for 30 years. Gabriele's been fishing for two.

    He casts better than me, locates fish better than me, hooks more fish than me, wades better than me.

    And this is a young man who learned to fly-fish in Italy, of all places.​

    The work in progress continues with some updates. Hopefully I've caught most of the changes through Greg Dalby.
