Congratulations to Ashleigh Harrison (Mendo County and SFHS) who has made the 3rd and final cut to earn a spot on the PDP squad that is preparing players for (even higher levels of play) and a round of inter-State tourneys. This is a highly rigourous and prestigious invitation-only program open to only the top 30 d1 players (born in 1998) in the entire Northern California playing district (thousands and thousands of female players). Ashleigh drives once or twice a month to the Bay Area to receive coaching/train with the team. One of the staff coaches is the u-17 NATIONAL team coach, who runs a few of the trainings.
Ashleigh has also earned a TRYOUT at the professional Academy of PSG (yes the actual Paris Saint Germain pro club who are the "Arsenal" of Paris). Ash will travel in early June and spend a week at the Club, training with both the Boys and Girls' squads.
* Note the last (and we believe only??) Humboldt player to make the STATE team was the now-famous Piakai Henkel...who also went on to play U-17 pro with PSG !!! Coincidence? I think not.
Go Ashleigh Go PSG Go FC SAMOA
