Thirty rising seniors from various Clubs were handpicked to play in the New York Red Bulls High School Cup, an East vs. West format All-Star game featuring the top USSF Development Academy Players from across the country. Seacoast United was represented by three players: forward Steffan Defregger (Guilford, NH), and midfielders Jimmy Petruccelli (Brentwood, NH) and Faz Nabi (Portland, ME). The boys shared a fantastic experience as they were given the opportunity to play with and against the best in the country.
Petruccelli noted, "The trip was an incredible experience because we were treated as if we were the actual Redbull professional team. The set up was impeccable, from flying each and everyone us down there, to being able meet and have dinner with Redbull players, allowing all of us to get a glimpse at what being a professional is really about. Being able to play with fellow Seacoast teammates was great because all three of us are friends which just made it that much more of an enjoyable weekend."
