    These guys were selected for the Region 1 pool coming out of Europe.

    Paul Boehme 1992
    Dalton Churchwell 1993
    T.J. Cloma 1991
    Chris Coulton 1990
    Kevin Durr 1991
    Kris Lusk 1990
    John Nydell 1989
    Scott Rogers 1989
    Teddy Vallee 1991

    Durr is at Bayern Munich.

    Vallee is presumably somewhere in Slovakia since his dad is the Ambassador to that country (he also has a little brother who I've heard is a good player).

    Nydell was seen last year at SYCOB in England.

    Cloma is in Germany I think

    Boehme I believe has an older brother, Alex, who is himself a good player and has spent some time with SV Sandhausen in Germany.

    Lusk may be in Scotland.

    Any further information is welcome.

    Is this it?
    Demetrius Omphroy (taken from TDS)

    For Omphroy, the chance to live and train with the Sporting Lisbon club is the embodiment of what these organizations are hoping to provide on a regular basis. Having taken a 2-week trial with the Portugese club last year, he has been accepted into the academy at age 17, with a chance to earn a professional contract upon turning 18."

    It could be I thought he had an Irish sur name..but it was definetly Lisbon..any word on this kid? This sounds to good to be true, Do you remeber the Kid Sean Rush from Baltimore last summer wjo tried to get on the a serie b side..? He is from my area and it sounded great but for logistics it went sour.

    I think that kid got a hook up from his family friend but the Italian team later found him below par. So we will see with this Kid at this a favor for someone? You know...

    Oh and thanks

    I think you may be thinking of a kid (not sure of the name) who played for a team out in Santa Cruz. I believe he was signed on to West Ham's youth academy.

    The kid recently named in connection with West Ham was surnamed Lletget and based on your description of the photograph I believe that's who you mean. I wasn't aware that he had officially gone over yet, however.

    I doubt that Omphroy is in Portugal on a favor. Based on his inclusion in youth national team pools, he's considered one of the top players in his age group in the U.S. and I would hope anyone with that distinction would be attractive to professional clubs.

    So what is Rush doing now? I wasn't aware that the club decided to part ways -- thought it was to do with some kind of financial/other problems with his Italian club that made it hard on foreigners, though my memory's fuzzy.

    Is that his voice in the newest one? He sounds like he has a strong accent!

    I am not sure on didnt sound as clear as you made it out. The way you say it sound legit , but the way I read here was very vague.

    Oh and the Kid I am talking about isnt Omphroy who I know nothing about yet.

    The kid I was talking about is still a mystery

    Sean said he is going to Betis when I spoke to him a few days ago, he played in MD Majors which is MD's amatuer/semi-pro league last season. He will be training with the reserves with a view to the first team from what he said.

    As an aside, Kevin Durr graduated from German Youth Teams to the Air Force Academy.

    He was a frosh last year and had 3 goals, 2 assists (if you're one of the wretched pukes that uses statistics as a crutch like me) in 17 matches.

    Given his education path I think it's safe to say Kevin will not be representing the US on the soccer pitch as a professional. Nevertheless, kudos to him. Academically the academy schools are great. It sounds like he is preparing for big things, just not on the pitch.

    Good luck to Kevin.
