The U.S. Soccer Development Academy, now in its 12th year of existence, continues to churn out top talent across New England.
Just last season, Kevin Vang (Cranston, R.I.) he went from the New England Revolution to Providence College, and Julio Fulcar (Watertown, Conn.) went from the Boston Bolts to Syracuse University. That’s only a small snippet, too.
