"The All-American Game cannot be described with words, footage, and social media posts. Practicing with the best players in the country and playing a game with them, not just any game, one of the most beautiful games, can only be described with the feeling inside of you. It is a very humbling experience to be considered among the country's best and to be given such an opportunity. I had so much fun practicing and playing during the short weekend. I honestly felt like a kid again. I made lasting friendships, some of these guys I will play against in the following months in the club season and others when I'm in college. The organization is great and the coaching staff are very friendly and know the game. Many years from now I will look back to that weekend, and remember all the players, the game under the lights, and that feeling within!"

December 5, 2015 All-American Games to be played at
Cardinal Gibbons High in Raleigh, NC.
Congratulations to 2011 Participant Shane O'Neill on playing for the U-20 world cup.
"The All American game was a fantastic experience for me and was a great opportunity for me to prove myself against some of the top players from around the country. It is a great chance for any player to get exposure in such a quality match. Because of the All-American game, top schools such as Indiana, Xavier, and Virginia were in touch with me after the game. However, I opted to sign a professional contract out of high school. Overall the experience I had at the All American game was great. It is run by good people and the quality of players is very high. Anyone given the chance to play in this game should absolutely take it as it can open up so many doors for you. The All American game did so much for me to help get me where I am today and for that i'm very grateful."

Tab Ramos On defender Shane O’Neill fitting into the mix:
“Shane has done a great job with us. We brought him in for the first time in October of [last] year on a recommendation by Wilmer Cabrera who had him and knows the national programs pretty well. We brought him in and he’s a great kid. He works very hard, he can play either the 6 role, which is a defensive midfield role, or he can play a center back role on the right side, which is a great help for us because we’ve been a little bit depleted in that area. He’s done a great job. I think he’s going to be an important part of this group, and possibly not only for this part of it but moving on if we’re lucky enough to move on.”
