Sam Nicholson  •  Edinburgh, Scotland  • Midfielder #28  —  MN United FC


Who’s that new face in the Minnesota United FC midfield? It’s none other than Scottish midfielder, Sam Nicholson! The 22-year-old was MNUFC’s first signing of the summer and joined the club from Hearts, where he made over 100 appearances. He loves having the ball at his feet and taking on defenders.

Addison Dobratz  •  Andover, Minn.   •  U9 Girls North Metro Wizards


Addison Dobratz, a forward on the U9 North Metro Wizards, is nominating her whole team for the Cup. Their team started off the tournament with a strong 3-1 win in the U9 competive group. This is their second year playing together as a team. In their short two years as a team they have grown together both in their soccer skills and in life. They hope to continue their journey together in the future years. Good luck girls!

Jorge Romero  •  Chicago  •  Elite FC


This is Jorge’s 4th year at USA Cup. This is one of his favorite tournaments. He’s very happy to be back this year after he recovered from an injury that kept him out of last year’s cup. He started off the tournament with leading his team to a 5-0 victory. He hopes to keep that momentum and take first place at the end of the weekend.
