GFL Soccer 2014 Trip Overview

GFL Soccer Select Teams 2014 played total of 10 games in Germany!

14 players were able to try out with FC Bayern Munich and TSV 1860 Munich!
GFL Select Teams had 4 wins, 5 losses and 1 tie and almost came back with a .500 record! This is remarkable when considering we played most of our games against the top Bundesliga Youth teams of what Germany has to offer.

GFL’s Stephen Rudderham to play in the Youth Bundesliga!

 

As a testament to our dedication in providing unprecedented opportunities not only within collegial soccer but professional, we have Stevie Rudderham, who participated in our international trip in 2013. Stevie is currently a U17 player for the FC Tampa Rangers (Ranked #1 in the USA). After graduating from High School in Spring of 2015, he will move to Germany to play for the FC Magdeburg U19 Team, before hopefully signing his first professional contract in Germany in 2016.  Let his success be a motivation, inspiration and fuel for all players to work harder, be more dedicated, self-sufficient and self motivated and they too could enjoy an opportunity such as Stevie. We must also interject that his placement within this program was made possible from GFL’s tireless efforts to showcase talent that otherwise would have been overlooked. Stevie is a great example of how little things can develop into something bigger.
