Geetings Cards fans. I in no way want to take away from all of the Strong love going around these parts (myself included) over the past few days, but just thought I'd give a quick update on a few of our soccer-playing Cardinals. Major League Soccer (yes, the "Beckham League" ugh) recently announced its list for the upcoming player combine which takes place right before the draft in mid-January.
Three Louisville players (out of 62 total invitees) have been invited to the combine, including Othaniel Yanez, Fred Braun, Phil Edginton, which is a very nice accomplishment. Quick note: Louisville had more players invited than several of the traditional NCAA soccer powerhouses including Indiana, Maryland and Wake Forest. Anyway, if you are so inclined, you can find more info here: MLS Player Combine invitees released
In addition, sophomore Colin Rolfe recently became the first Louisville player to be one of the 15 players named as a semi-finalist for the Hermann Trophy (soccer's equivalent to the Heisman). Congrats to Coach Ken Lolla and his staff for the great job they've done in elevating the program to new heights since taking over.
