Boys ECNL All-America Team, 2018-19 Player of the Year revealed

RICHMOND, VA (July 18, 2019) – The Boys ECNL All-America Team, as well as Boys ECNL Player of the Year have been announced for the 2018-2019 season.

Each of these athletes have made extreme sacrifices to put themselves in the position they are in today, whether it was sacrificing time with friends and family, or their bodies on the pitch. These young athletes are a representation of what it takes to become the best that you can be.

Overall, thirty players were selected to the Boys ECNL All-America Team by the All-America Committee. The committee includes technical representatives from each of the seven Boys ECNL conferences located across the country.

From this distinguished group of players, Grayson Doody, forward from the U-17 Boys ECNL National Championship Beach FC squad, was named the ECNL Player of the Year.

“Super proud of Grayson. He has earned a spot on the Boys ECNL All-America team by working hard, being committed to the team, and most importantly, always showing the determination to continue improving himself on and off the soccer field.”

Ever Morataya, Beach FC U-17 Head Coach
