This just in from the club, including a few notes that I don't believe I've blogged earlier:
Steve Zakuani and O'Brian White clocked the fastest times in the 30-yard sprint tests conducted last week in training...SuperDraft choice Alex Caskey, supplemental pick Sean Morris and invitees Edouard Kabamba, Cole Peverley and Jesus Gonzalez are no longer training with the club...Major League Soccer announced last week that the Houston Dynamo will shift to the Eastern Conference for 2011. Expansion teams Portland and Vancouver are in the West...Tacoma product Brent Goulet made his U.S. National Team debut on February 5, 1986 in a scoreless draw with Canada in Miami...David Estrada celebrates his 23rd birthday on February 4...Nearly 200 players participated in the Sounders FC Open Tryouts last weekend at Starfire Sports Complex. With the technical staff observing the players competed in six small-sided games each day. For a final assessment the cast was cut to 50 players for two full-field, 11v11 games on Sunday afternoon.
