Friday Notes

The second week of training is now nearly in the books with a couple of noteworthy items to pass along.

Donovan Ricketts and Omar González each arrived in camp this week and have begun training with the club. Also arriving in LA this week was defender Yohance Marshall. A four-year starter at the University of South Florida, helping lead the Bulls to the Big East title in 2008, Marshall went undrafted in the SuperDraft but has now joined the Galaxy on trial as you can see below.

Additionally, Tristan Bowen had a big day today, celebrating his 18th birthday. While he said that he was disappointed that he missed out on the chance to vote in this latest election, he said he is looking forward to having that opportunity going forward.

Lastly, with these guys spending so much time together during preseason, there is bound to be more than a fair share of hi jinx as we found out last night. Turns out that Bryan Jordan pulled a prank on Brandon McDonald, taking all of his left cleats, leaving him with nothing but right cleats in his locker. In return, Jordan was greeted at his locker this morning by this site.

The ball is now in BJ's court.

Nice... way to go, Brandon & Bryan. Thanks for the update on trialists. If there's any latest scrimmage/training video, we would like to see it.
