Ryan Carney (Dunstable, Mass.) was certainly a little shocked when he heard the news that he had been called into the United States Under-17 National Team Domestic Training Camp in Chula Vista, Calif., which will run from Nov. 1-8.
But the Revolution Academy goalkeeper knew it was also the product of years of dedication to his craft.
"I was also very, very proud," said Carney. "It’s been a lot of hard work that I’ve put in and I think that it’s my opportunity to shine at that level. I’m also very, very thankful for all the coaches that I’ve been through, here at the Revs, and my other clubs as well. It was kind of a mind-blowing moment (to get the news)."
