LAFAYETTE, Colo. - The AIG Men's Collegiate All-Americans coaching staff has called on 57 athletes to attend the Identification Camp at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center Jan. 14-16. The first assembly of the under-23 national team in 2017 follows an aggressive outreach to collegiate and club coaches and players throughout the final quarter of 2016, resulting in 33 colleges represented in the Camp squad list. The robust input from the community will also allow Head Coach Gavin Hickie and staff to communicate with student-athletes unavailable for the Identification Camp for the purposes of future national team development. Based on nominations, references from coaches, video submissions, and scouting reports and recommendations from the Eagle Eye Scouting Network, the Identification Camp list features several athletes who have previously stood out on the collegiate stage but have not represented a U.S. age-grade team. "We would like to thank all coaches throughout the country who gave their time to nominate, recommend, and discuss players," Hickie said. "We received more than 300 nominations, which meant we had some tough calls to make, but this is a good problem to have. We recognize the challenge of identifying the country's top talent through the collegiate game, but we continue to cast the net wide and are encouraged to see that there are so many ambitious and talented student-athletes playing the game."...
