More open tryout callbacks revealed–Yale’s Raybould, Seneca Sting’s Akentan among those returning for second round

As more names emerge from the list of Union callbacks, it is clear that Peter Nowak and his staff have hit a potential gold mine of overlooked collegiate talent.

The Seneca Sting's Perry Akenten

C. Horridus has learned that Yale’s 2009 captain Jordan Raybould and starting goal keeper Travis Chulik have both been called back for the second round. Perry Akenten, a member of the Seneca Sting side that won the 2009 Canadian Colleges Athletic Association championship, has also been called back (Akenten also reached the second round of the Chicago Fire’s 2008 tryouts).

Others who will return for the second round include Brian Mascarenhas of UPenn, Shintaro Harada of Crystal Palace Baltimore, and Ryan Soroka of St. John’s. The tryouts will be held on Jan. 24th at the YSC Sports Complex in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

American University’s Anthony Moy also received a callback, but will not be able to attend due to an ACL tear he suffered a week after the first tryouts.

Moy should be back and playing in six months and hopes his chances with the Union won’t end just because of a torn ACL.

“It’s definitely an unfortunate thing” Moy said by email Sunday, “and I hope I can get another opportunity to tryout for the Union in the future when I am cleared and at full fitness.”
