2011 US Youth Soccer National Championships Best 11 announced!
Similar to FIFA’s all-tournament concept, the Best 11 recognizes the best eleven players in each gender age group, irrespective of their position on the field, as voted by coaches of the participating teams in that age group.
In addition to the historic trophies, the Best 11 award joins the Golden Ball, Golden Glove and Fair Play awards given out annually at the National Championships. The Golden Ball and Glove were first awarded in 1998 to the players in each division who have the greatest competitive impact in the National Championships, and has featured winners such as Robbie Findley, Jonathan Bornstein, Freddy Adu, Chris Seitz, Lindsey Tarpley, Christen Press and Kerri Hanks.
U15 PDA Slammers placed 4 players on the “Best 11” at the USYS National Championships. Rachel Corboz, Caroline Chagares, Natasha Ntone Kouo and Courtney Brosnan made the “Best 11” from the Slammers, while Daphne Corboz and Gabriella Guzman were named to the “Best 11” from the PDA Tsunami in the U19 group.
In addition, Courtney Brosnan won the “Golden Glove” title and Caroline Chagares won the “Golden Ball” title!
