Four players with ties to the Philadelphia Union will be part of the rosters for the United States U17 and U16 teams that will be competing in the Nike Friendlies in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. from November 14-16.

Philadelphia Union homegrown midfielder Jack de Vries is on the U17 roster while the academy trio of Patrick Bohui, Jack McGlynn and Dante Huckaby were called into the U16 squad.

McGlynn is the lone player out of the four called up who didn’t feature for Bethlehem Steel FC in 2019. De Vries was signed to a homegrown deal with the first team back in August but won’t be officially added to the roster until January. McGlynn, a New York native, joined the academy over the summer and has been playing with the U17 team while Bohui and Huckaby have been playing with the U19 team.
