Baltimore Bays Chelsea coaches, players lead Disney All-Star team on England tour

Eighteen of the country’s most talented high school soccer players (including three local players) participated on the Disney’s Soccer Showcase All-Star Team, which represented the United States during a foreign tour from July 30 to August 8.

The squad was made up of top performers from the Under-17 boys division who competed in Disney’s Soccer Showcase presented by Chelsea FC, the nation’s leading college recruiting tournament which drew nearly 30,000 athletes, college coaches and fans to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex this past December.

With the exception of three 1995 birthdays, the players were born in 1994 and graduate high school in 2012. Many of the players have verbally committed to some of the best college soccer programs in the country after high school.

The 2011 Disney All-Stars have committed to University of North Carolina, North Carolina State, Northern Illinois University, Penn State, Old Dominion and UCLA, among others. A few of the players have been extended opportunities to play overseas as well.
