Galaxy Youth Named To Academy Starting XI

Riley Wolfe, a midfielder on the LA Galaxy's U-16 playoff squad, has been named to the US Soccer Development Academy Starting XI. Wolfe was the only Galaxy Academy player included on the squad.

Wolfe has been on quite a streak. After participating in a match between USSDA select team and U.S. Under-17 Men's National Team in may, Wolfe was invited to take part in the USMNT U-17 camp last month. A huge get as he was one of four not in the team's Residency Program in Bradenton, Fla. to be invited.

He obviously impressed Head Coach Wilmer Cabrera and his staff. Tomorrow, Wolfe will travel to Brazil with the USMNT U-17 Team to take part in a Pre-2009 U-17 World Cup tournament.

As if that weren't, earlier this week, Wolfe and teammate Eric Gonzalez were named to the West Conference Starting XI.

Congrats to Eric Gonzalez and Riley Wolfe. Really, good guys with soccer abilities and soccer interests. Hats off to their parents, as well - in sticking with their sons' hopes, dreams, practices, and many, many games. Proud of them. Wish them both the very best of luck and future. I hope to see them play in the professional leagues, if chacnes and luck permit.
Thanks for passing on this info! Appreciate it!

I heard from a source in side the SD Nomads that Rodolfo Godinez has signed with the Galaxy. Can anybody confirm that? Did he sign with the first team or the U-20 Galaxy?
