With so much suffering and sorrow plaguing the world today, it often seems obvious that single individuals can only have a token effect in improving the lives of faraway strangers.

But anyone tempted to underestimate the power of one should witness the astonishing results achieved by Spotsylvania, Va. teenager Sean McManus when he decided to collect soccer equipment for needy youth in Rwanda and Nicaragua for his Eagle Scout project.

Days away from the start of the 2011-2012 U.S. Soccer Development Academy season, we turn our attention to D.C. United’s strong tradition of player development. In the past two years, United’s Academy has produced several first team contributors, including 2010 MLS Rookie of the Year Andy Najar, U.S. National Team back-up goalkeeper Bill Hamid, recent U.S. U-23 call-up Ethan White and U.S. U-20 midfielder Conor Shanosky.

WASHINGTON – One of the biggest advantages about the return of the MLS Reserve League in 2011 is the chance for Academy players to get in the mix with the pros.

Such was the case for D.C. United U-18 defender Patrick Foss, who earned a start with D.C.’s Reserves in a 2-2 tie Thursday morning against the Red Bulls.

Foss, who spent last year at the U.S. U-17 Academy in Bradenton, Florida, enjoyed the chance to test himself against New York’s reserves.
