ACYS Spirit United would like to congratulate U15 player Felipe Cardona on being chosen this past weekend as one of the finalists for Sueno MLS. Sueno MLS is a nationally-televised search for the top undiscovered soccer talent in North America. Out of thousands of registrants who participated in three open try outs across the Nation, U15 player Felipe Cardona, who is called Pipe by his Coaches and Teammates, was offered one of only 5 invitations to attend a trip to a five-day National Final in Carson, California that will be hosted by MLS Ambassador and legendary Mexican defender Pavel Pardo. U15 Coach and ACYS Program Director Eddie Santos has been working with Felipe for almost three years now and says "We are extremely proud of Pipe! As one of his Coaches, it is very rewarding to witness his accomplishments through his hard work and dedication. We will be rooting for him and are excited about this great opportunity that he has earned."
The finals will include training sessions, scrimmages, guest celebrity scouts and an opportunity to meet some of the league's biggest stars. In addition, Felipe will be invited to join a youth level team at the MLS represented at the National Finals. Since its inception in 2007, Sueno MLS has given many young talented athletes an opportunity to showcase their skills and impress scouts. The program has helped discover several standouts, including the 2007 original winner Jorge Villafaria, a nine-year MLS veteran who now starts for the Portland Timbers, and 2008 winner Gabriel Funes Mori, who plays for Portugal's St. Benifica and is currently on lone in Turkey. Many others have gone on to play for MLS academy teams, youth national teams and professionally around the world.
