According to Today’s Dallas Morning News, an 18-year old from Washington, DC is playing for Clube Athletico in Brazil. Clube Atletico's Michael Banner Jr. played soccer as a freshman at Georgetown. He made his first appearance in a match for the Brazilian club. "It was a great first pro match," said Banner, an 18-year-old native of Washington, D.C. "It was everything I thought it would be. The fans, they were all against us." http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dallas/sports/soccer/stories/100203dnspochallenge.232db.html I did a google search on Banner and didn’t come up with much. According to Georgetown’s website, last year he played in 18 games, with 13 starts and had 0 goals and two assists. http://www.guhoyas.com/sports/m-soccer/stats/teamcume.htm#TEAM.IND He was originally listed on their 2003 roster so presumably he went down to Brazil to tryout/train and managed to get an offer. According to this, he’s a 5-9, 145 pound MF. http://www.bigeast.org/sports/msoccer/teams/gae/roster.asp I couldn’t find any ODP state or region links to the kid nor could I find any references to him playing for Gonzaga HS in DC (though with alums like that “Diamond” Bill Bennett and Pat Buchanan, you’d think he’d a school like that would produce pretty good right wings!). I have no idea how good this kid is or, for that matter, what level in Brazil Athletico plays.
