There’s a good chance that on Thursday a Canadian will be picked first overall in Major League Soccer’s SuperDraft. Amara Darboh Womens Jersey . UCONN forward Cyle Larin won’t be in Philadelphia for the draft, as he is currently away with Canada’s U-20 national team trying to qualify for this summer’s FIFA U20 World Cup, but the 19-year-old from Brampton is widely projected to be a top two pick. Orlando City holds the first-overall selection in the SuperDraft with fellow expansion club New York City FC picking second ahead of Montreal Impact in third. Toronto FC holds three first-round picks, starting with number six, and Vancouver Whitecaps are 13th in line. On this week’s TSNFC podcast, we were joined by Bobby Smyrniotis, the Technical Director for Sigma FC, the academy where Larin developed his talents from the age of 11. Smyrniotis has been at the MLS Combine in Florida over the past few days where he has had conversations with staff of both Orlando and New York about Larin. Larin finished his UConn career with 23 goals in 39 games and was named American Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year in 2013. This year he was named AAC Offensive Player of the Year. So what makes him stand out? “He’s a rare blend of a big number-nine striker who has got soft feet and is very technical,” said Smyrniotis. “I think what makes him alluring for many of the clubs here in MLS is that he blends the physical attributes with being a very intelligent footballer.” “As a number nine he has the ability to score in and around the box from a variety of manners, whether he is beating players or whether it’s with service from the outside, his aerial game is very good, Smyrniotis continued. The other thing that people see in him is his hold-up play. He’s very good at bringing the ball down and having defenders around him and that helps a team that wants to play with a point man up top.” Despite just leaving college, Larin is no stranger to the professional game, having spent time training with a number of European clubs over the last couple of years including Genk and Club Brugge in Belgium and Hertha Berlin, Wolfsburg and Werder Bremen in Germany. There had been some speculation that Larin would leave college a year early and join the class of the 2014 SuperDraft, but with another year under his belt, Symrniotis is confident the Canadian teenager has all of the qualities needed to deal with the pressure of being a very high draft pick. “He’s got the right mentality for it,” said Smyrniotis. “He has been in some good environments in the past and over the last year getting called up to the senior national team with Benito Floro has helped him a lot. He has been over training with some European clubs, so he has had a taste of the pros and I think that will prepare him for what is coming in the next couple of weeks.” “He is a very level-headed young man. That is something we try and work at with young players – the mental coaching aspect of things, making sure the players don’t get too high and don’t get too low, Smyrniotis went on. There’s a long process involved in things and there will be a lot of ups and downs as a pro and I think he has been well prepared for that. His name has been talked about a lot in the media, but he usually stays away from that and is unaware of a lot of it and I think that’s a good thing on his part.” Smyrniotis feels that Larin could be a quick study in the MLS. “I think it comes down to where he may go, or what the exact needs of that club will be, he said. From a technical aspect he will definitely need a couple of months to get his feet wet, but I think it will be a quicker transition than a slower one.” Larin isn’t the first product from Sigma Academy to head into the MLS SuperDraft. Two years ago, Kyle Bekker and Emory Welshman were both picked in the first round by Toronto FC. Smyrniotis has been to every MLS Combine since 2008 and has been impressed with the standard of players on show this time around. “It’s been a relatively good combine, he said. Some of the top players are missing, such as Cyle who is down in Jamaica, but what is important to note in talking with the MLS teams is that they still take this very seriously. A lot of MLS teams now have USL PRO teams as their reserve teams, so they will have a legitimate place for some of these players to keep on developing, instead of them just being released in a few weeks - that has been one of the big issues in the past.” It promises to be an exciting few days for Larin as he continues to play a role in Canada’s quest to qualify for the 2015 U-20 World Cup in New Zealand and also gets to find out where he will begin his pro career. He could end up in Orlando, playing alongside Brazilian star Kaka, or in New York, where he could learn off NYCFC’s star striker David Villa. Whatever the outcome, Larin seems capable of playing a major role for club and country in the years to come.

Seven times since Furyk last won at the 2010 Tour Championship, he has had at least a share of the 54-hole lead. Seven times he has failed to convert. He gave himself yet another opportunity Saturday with a bogey-free round of 2-under 69 that left him tied with Jason Day going into the final round at The Barclays. Nervous? Motivated? Determined? "Excited about one more opportunity," Furyk said. This one is not his to lose. Its for just about everyone to win. As steady as Furyk was on a cloudy Saturday at Ridgewood, Day was all over the place. He lost a ball in a mound of high grass and took double bogey on the par-5 13th, the third-easiest hole at Ridgewood in the third round. He took four shots to get down from a bunker on the par-5 17th for a bogey. Each time, the Australian bounced back with one or more birdies. Day, who has made 13 birdies the past two days, wound up with a 68. They were at 9-under 204. And they had a lot of company. Fifteen players were separated by three shots going into the final round, an eclectic group that features players trying to get into the top 100 to advance to the second event in the FedEx Cup playoffs (Morgan Hoffmann, Bo Van Pelt, Gonzalo Fernandez Castano) to players with far more experience (Hunter Mahan, Matt Kuchar). A few notable players were missing from that group. Adam Scott, tied for the lead going into the third round, made only one bogey and shot 75 to fall five shots behind. British Open and PGA champion Rory McIlroy, going after his fourth straight victory, made an early move before he was slowed by a pair of bogeys around the turn. He could only manage a 70 and was five behind. Phil Mickelson was headed home. For only the second time in six years, the 54-hole cut was used during the FedEx Cup playoff. Mickelson shot 75 and did not advance. For only the second time in six years, the 54-hole cut was used during the FedEx Cup playoff. Mickelson shot 75 and did not advance. Still unclear was whether he would play next week in the second playoff event outside Boston. If he doesnt, Mickelson could risk failing to advance to the third event in Denver. Mickelson still managed to keep it entertaining. For the second straight day, his tee shot on the par-4 fifth hole wound up on the terrace of a grandstand left of the green. Delano Hill Jersey. He played it off the carpet, and at least this time saved par. But it wasnt enough to save him. There were wild shifts in momentum, birdies and bogeys everywhere at Ridgewood. Through it all, Furyk was a steady presence. He picked up his only two birdies on the back nine and saved par with a long bunker shot to tap-in range on the 18th to get into a familiar position. Now all he has to do is change the result. He has lost chances at a World Golf Championship and two majors. His last opportunity was a month ago in the Canadian Open, when only a few players had a realistic chance to win. Tim Clark beat him one shot. This was one is different. "Theres a ton of guys between 5- and 9-under par," Furyk said. "Going to be a little bit of a shootout tomorrow. So Im happy to be at 9 (under) and looking forward to it. Had some opportunities this year and I felt like Ive played well on Sunday." Without winning, it has been a strong year. Furyk has three runner-up finishes, eight top 10s and already has cleared $4.6 million. Hes on the Ryder Cup team for the ninth straight time, one short of the American record held by Mickelson. That glaring streak -- 0-for-7 when hes been atop the leaderboard going into Sunday since his last win -- is not on his mind. "Its done. Its over," he said. "Ive thought about those situations and how I could handle them better. Just put it behind me and try to use it to my advance. I dont need any motivation sitting tied for the lead in a big golf tournament on a golf course that I really enjoy playing and have a lot of respect for. No extra motivation needed. Im just happy to be in a good spot and looking forward to tomorrow." Day already has a victory this year -- the Match Play Championship in February -- though he has reason to feel it has been a lost year. He injured his thumb and didnt play again until the Masters, and then missed six more weeks. He is healthy now, though he hasnt been in contention in six months. "Its been a stop-start year," Day said. "To be able to work hard and get yourself into contention, maybe to even win the FedEx Cup at the end of the playoffs, would cap off a great year. Theres still a lot of good golf ahead of me." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
