Josh and Caleb were selected to train with the U.S. Training center in Columbus, Ohio, where the best players in the region are selected to train together at least once every month.   U.S Soccer has collaborated with local and state soccer associations to identify players with Youth National Team potential.   U.S Center training will be conducted by a member of the U.S. Soccer National Team Staff.

While practicing with the U.S. training center the Director of Columbus Crew youth academy was so impressed with Caleb and Josh; he invited them to train with the Columbus Crew youth academy. Josh and Caleb have been practicing with the Columbus Crew academy every Wednesday and will be playing with the academy team against other MLS academy teams around the country. 

At 11 years old both boys have achieved many accomplishments thus far and continue to impress coaches, both in the United States and at the international level.  Below are a few accomplishments these young athletes have received in the past couple years.
