Michael Cortellessa called up for US U16 camp

FC Dallas’ versatile U16 Michael Cortellessa has been named to the US U16 team by U15 Head Coach Tom Heinneman for a camp in Chula Vista, CA, from August 18th to the 24th. Cortellessa can play multiple positions at a high level and has, perhaps half in jest, been compared to Ryan Hollingshead due to his versatility.

Also of interest, FC Dallas U15 coach, Alez Aldaz, will be involved as an assistant coach for the US U16s.

This U16 camp will take place in conjunction with the U17 camp.
