EXCITING NEWS—6 of our Blast FC 2006 RL players were notified today of an offer to go overseas to Croatia for a 4-6 club tryout in late July-early August.  Eli Bush, Jeremiah Kanu, Deven Patel, Sky Sie, Aidan Shepardson, and Max Thomas all caught the attention of Besnik Prenga, NK Lokomotiva Zagreb Club Director, when the squad played his club last summer in Zagreb, Croatia.  Prenga was impressed with Blast FC and attended every match that the Blast FC 2006 squad played while in Croatia.  Upon the squad’s return to the USA, Prenga continued to contact Lesh and talk about opportunities and possibilities.  After seeing the squad play again during the Disney Boys Showcase, Prenga immediately contacted Lesh asking for these players to come to Croatia to run through a series of trainings and games with 4-6 different Division 1 Croatian Clubs.  The players will travel over to Zagreb, Croatia in late July and stay for a few weeks. Each will have the opportunity to train and play with other young men and vie for spots with these clubs.  At the completion of this trial, the players will hopefully walk away with an offer to sign with a club and return next Summer.
