HERRIMAN, Utah (Wednesday, February 22, 2022) – RSL Academy defender Luis Rivera midfielder Dominic Berrios and forward Zavier Gozo have been named by U.S. Under-15 Men’s Youth National Team Head Coach Tom Heinneman to his first training camp roster from February 21-28 at the Elite Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif.
This is the first call-up for Berrios and Rivera to a team within the U.S. Soccer Youth National Team system. Gozo was previously named to the training camp in January, impressing the staff enough to earn a second-consecutive call-up.
The trio joined the RSL Academy prior to the start of this season in August of 2021, under Head Coach Andrew May, who led last year’s group to the U15 MLS NEXT Cup Championship. Berrios came to the RSL Academy from RSL-Arizona, while Gozo developed within local club, La Roca, and Rivera was recruited from RSL-El Paso in Texas.
All three recently started for RSL Academy in a 1-1 draw against San Jose Earthquakes. In league play, Gozo leads the team with three goals, while Berrios and Rivera have each added a goal apiece.
RSL Academy’s three players are tied with FC Dallas, LA Galaxy and San Jose Earthquakes for the third-most represented from one club, behind LAFC and Philadelphia Union.
The RSL Academy return to the Bay Area this weekend for a double header against Sacramento Republic on Saturday, February 26 and Ballistic United on Sunday, February 27.
