Four players from the Philadelphia Union Academy are among the 36 players in camp in Chula Vista, Calif. with the United States U-15 team.
Goalkeeper Gavin Atkinson, defender Neil Pierre, midfielder Zach Mastrodimos and forward Diego Rocio are all in camp through February 28 at the Elite Athlete Training Center. The Union quartet are the second most from one team to LAFC with six players on the roster. Eighteen teams — 16 MLS academies — are represented in the squad.
Another local player on the roster is Red Bulls defender Jeremiah White, a Philadelphia native who is the son of former USMNT midfielder Jeremiah White.
The camp is the first under Tom Heinneman, a former Penn FC forward, who was recently named as the new coach.
