    The good thing was that he openly admitted who he was and his relationships with Cooper family.

    That's true, to Mike's credit he made that clear very early on.

    Dante Sealy ended the development academy campaign this season with 30 goals in 23 games. Put 4 past Sacramento Republic this weekend in the summer showcase.

    The last FCD homegrown signee, Bryan Reynolds, is the son of a former USYNTer Keith Reynolds (who went on to some acclaim while playing at SMU for Schellas Hyndman.......grandfather of Emerson Hyndman). Was Tim Howard's roommate apparently with some USYNTs.

    Not quite the point of the thread, but...................

    I don't know if you've mentioned them, but the Twellman's are members of the father-son USMNT brigade. Tim Twellman had one cap for the USMNT in the 80s (played in the NASL for the Tulsa Roughnecks and others.)

    Two of Taylor Twellman's uncles also played in the NASL. Steve Twellman played for the Boston Minutemen and Mike Twellman played for the Chicago Sting.

    The Dante Sealy situation could get interesting. At the moment, he's regarded by TDS as the top '03 in the country. If T&T qualify for the 2022 World Cup, perhaps they offer him a roster spot, maybe they do it even earlier in the cycle. And they'd have a very good chance to continue to qualify in 2026 and beyond given the expansion. Obviously he'll stick with the US if he wants to, but things can get complicated for anyone if an enticing offer is presented.

    US U17 Tim Weah is the champion of this category. He just signed his first pro deal with PSG.
    As has been mentioned in this thread ,he's the son of Liberian international and Ballon d'Or winner George Weah. Still a long way from the USMNT, though.

    I don't think so. I remember reading that he played pro ball there, and also in Greece IIRC, but to my knowledge he never represented their national team.

    In a mother-daughter split, Susana Zigante has played for Croatia's U17s & U19s & supposedly has at least one cap for the senior team. Her mother, Gretchen Gegg Zigante, had 2 caps as a GK for the USWNT in 1986 & 1990.

    Wow a Kenny Cooper reference?
    At one time I was convinced that guy was going to be a big-time player for the USMNT.
    Big strong guy, light on his feet, had a nice shot.
    I was a fan of his.

    Weah joined the category tonight. Moore will have to wait for another chance.

    John Kerr, Jr. - father John Kerr, Sr. (Canada)
    Philip Gyau - father Nana Gyau (Ghana)
    Shaq Moore - father Wendell Moore (T&T)
    Teal Bunbury - father Alex Bunbury (Canada)
    Tim Weah - father George Weah (Liberia)

    In the wings having playing with (or at least in camp with) our YNTs:

    Fernando Arce, Jr. - father Fernando Arce (Mexico)
    Jesus Ferreira - son of David Ferreira (Colombia)
    Jonathan Klinsmann - father Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany)

    And possibly going the other direction:

    Dante Sealy just sign homegrown deal with FCD. Definitely one to keep an eye on. As you say, son of former MLSer and T&T international Scott Sealy. Dante was born in New York, so he's fully US eligible.

    Still very far from ever being a slight possibility, but Canadian legend Dwayne de Rosario's son Adisa, a 2004 GK for Toronto FC U15, is listed on both the official DA site and Football Talents with American nationality, just one of five US-born, Canada-raised DA products in recent years. (The two most prominent ones are Akinola and Odunze, both of whom have gone with the US for now.) You'd assume Adisa was born in California when Dwayne was playing there professionally, and eventually raised in his listed hometown of North York, Ontario.
