Can't say too much about the guy, but he's come up through the ranks (PDL) like Perkins, which I think is a good thing. There's nothing better than experience to shape a good keeper. I reckon we'll see how he looks in camp.

Hi Steve, some of us in Ohio are wondering what exactly the status of Kiki Willis is. Was he eligible to be drafted in the superdraft? If not, what MLS rule allows an underclassman to drop out of school and sign with an MLS team? Thanks for any info.

That makes me feel a little better. The Crew found out firsthand what it's like to lose goalie depth in the middle of the season.

nice lineup! If we could get some depth, this team will make some noise.
