McTavish on McTavish

I didn't have room for these quotes in my Wednesday story previewing United's match at Houston, so I figured I'd post 'em here.

Devon McTavish, pride of Winchester, Va., and a second-year player from West Virginia University, on his development as a central defender: "I'm getting there. Boswell's got a lot of experience back there so he has helped me a lot. Every game we get more comfortable, but I still have lots of work to do. I still make lots of silly or stupid mistakes. In time, hopefully, I will get rid of them."

On Rojas's brutal challenge against him that left the America defender with a red card: "People keep telling me it was pretty bad, but I haven't watched the replay yet. He got a running start and I just saw those studs coming up at me. I have no idea where that came from. He's a right back and I just happened to be up there. Maybe he was just tired and didn't want to play anymore."

Is McTavish's future in central defense or at right back? And when United is fully healthy (Boswell, Namoff, Vanney, Gros, McTavish, Burch), how should they line up?
