With the fall portion of the Development Academy season in the books, it's time to reflect on the past three-plus months of action throughout New England.
To accomplish that, we've assembled a midseason Best XI for the U-17 age group. When players feature at that level, interest from college soccer programs and a more-accurate sense of the player's long-term potential become more clear.
The below team is organized in a 3-4-3 formation and draws from the region's five DA clubs: New England Revolution, Boston Bolts, Seacoast United, Oakwood SC and Beachside SC.
As the spring season carries on, we’ll have more in-depth stories from the DA. In the meantime, our midseason Best XI.
