Legacy IMG Cup Recap

Dec. 18th through the 22nd the Legacy took 4 older boys teams down to Florida to compete in the IMG Cup. This was the 4th year the Legacy has made the trip to Bradenton/Sarasota. The Legacy competed very well against some of the best youth talent around.  Teams from everywhere traveled to Florida to compete in front of college coaches in the name of club and country.  While in Florida the teams were treated to a 5 day weekend of relaxation, bonding, and competition.  Every member in the group got an opportunity to watch the USA U17 Men's National Team play the Tottenham U18 Academy (UK).  This was a marquee experience for all of our players whom all could identify their own ability against some our Nation's Best.  All of our teams had success this weekend playing against teams from Brazil, Canada, Maryland, Georgia, Kentucky, and Florida. The Legacy is proud to recognize the U17 Boys Elite in particular for becoming champions this weekend. On each trip like this the team and club provide a team and overall club MVP for the trip based on play on the field and conduct off the field during the 5 days away.  This year the Club MVP was Noah Shorb (GK U16 Elite).  The Team MVPS were Andrew Williams (U15), Brennen Burton (U16), Matt Beatty (U17) and Clay Van Gieson (U18). "This was a another fantastic trip for our teams and coaches.  The ability to travel as a group like this creating team and club bonds, while also playing international competition on some of the best fields in the nation is an experience these kids will have for a lifetime.  Its a perfect trip for allowing the kids to be responsible, have fun with each other and be competitive in an environment very similar to a college soccer trip - which hopefully many of these kids will be doing in a few years" said Technical Director Bobby O'Brien "We are very happy with how these trips have gone and are excited to be taking the girls teams on this experience this coming spring!"
