US Soccer is holding a 36-player camp for the US U15 on Jan. 7-14 at the Elite Athlete Training Center in Chula Vista, CA, and two FC Dallas Academy players have been named to the squad, goalkeeper Jonathan Martinez and winger Bryce Outman.
I have not seen Martinez in enough action to tell much about him, but Outman is a nifty winger with good ball skill. As often is the case at the U15 level, Outman has apparently not hit his growth spurt and is currently quite undersized.
This is the first camp for this age group since March 2020 and it’s for 2007s and younger.
Dan DeGeer, head coach of the San Jose Earthquakes’ U-17s, will serve as the U-15 USMNT head coach for this training camp.
