U18 center back Auston Trusty and former Union Academy forward Sebastian Elney have been named to Tab Ramos's 22-man roster for the upcoming Dallas Cup.
Trusty, who has been getting minutes with Bethlehem Steel FC in preseason, is one of only four players born in 1998 on the roster. Trenton native Matthew Olosunde, John Nelson, and Josh Perez are the others. The other 19 were all born in 1997.
Elney led the Terps in goals with seven in his freshman season after spending a year playing for the Philadelphia Union Academy U18 team. His teammate Eryk Williamson, a DC United Academy product, is also on the roster.
