2014 ODP National Championships
Maryland State ODP 1998 Boys

[Posted 3/3/2014]

The Maryland State 1998 (U16) Boys earned silver medals at the 2014 ODP National Championship on Sunday morning.

Maryland fought hard but a penalty kick 5 minutes into the game put Cal South up a goal early and they never looked back. Maryland continued to battle until the last whistle showing their heart and determination but the final tally ended in a 4-0 victory for Cal South.

The 1998 (U16) Boys represented the state of Maryland and Region I well as they showed class and professionalism throughout the entire event. They proved that they are the best U16 boys ODP team east of the Mississippi and for that they should be extremely proud.

All of the players are committed to working hard over the next few months in hopes of winning the 2014 Region I Tournament (June 6-9, 2014) to earn a return visit to the ODP National Championships in 2015.    

Everyone from the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association congratulates the 1998 (U16) Boys on their accomplishment this past weekend and looks forward to watching them compete at the upcoming 2014 Region I Tournament. Let's go Maryland State ODP!

What is ODP?

The US Youth Soccer ODP is a national identification and development program for high-level players.  The program identifies  and develops youth players throughout the country to represent their state and regional associations.  At the state association level, pools of players are identified in each eligible age group, and brought together as a team to develop their skill through training and competition.  From the state pools and subsequent teams, players are identified for regional and national pools and teams.  Maryland State ODP teams are comprised of the best Maryland players in various age groups.

Congratulations to the 1998 Boys on winning the 2013 Region I Tournament!

Congratulations to the 1998 Boys Maryland State ODP team on winning the 2013 Region I Tournament for their age group and gender.

Coaches Brian Wall and Steve Shurman led the 1998 Boys to an undefeated season in both the 2013 VA Friendlies and the 2013 Region I Tournament. The 1998 Boys won the 2013 Region I tournament with a record of 5-0. This result was the product of an overall team effort. The 1998 Boys team effort produced a dominant performance outscoring their opponents 20-2. During their run, the offense had 5 players with multiple goals showing a balanced attack. There was not a weakness at any position. The midfield possession was impressive to say the least. The defense was amazing allowing only 2 goals during the 2013 Region I Tournament.

Additionally the 1997 Boys advanced to the finals where they lost to EPYSA.

Congratulations again from everyone at the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association and best of luck as you each work to earn a position on the 2013 Region I Pool this July.
