    It's fun looking back and seeing how players have developed over the past couple of years. And it's amazing that you have been doing it for so long. Thanks for all your hard work!

    The week before these three signings, 17 year old forward Jacen Russell-Rowe chose the NCAA route with him attending U of Maryland Terrapins.

    He is a home grown player for the Reds and if he continues his development to the Reds liking at Maryland he will be able to sign with them down the line.

    I wish they would all do this. Good for him!

    It's kind of similar to junior hockey in that is a big decision to attend an OHL training camp especially if you are a later round pick because it takes away your NCAA option. Parent (s) play a big part in this. I remember growing up in North Toronto knowing a number of people that shied away from major junior because of it. This home grown component in the MLS has changed the landscape, 5-10 years ago the scholarship was still the major goal for an elite soccer player in this country, but now the dream vs reality has changed, the waters are much murkier.

    I wonder what the plan is with Jordan Perruzza. He's a smart player who has produced at this level, but younger guys who are probably more coveted are getting the senior deals. I really like him, but it's fair to wonder how his game will translate to the next level. It wasn't that long ago that I thought he was significantly better than a guy like Theo Bair who is on a real upward trajectory now.
