Schulz Academy came to the U.S. Soccer Development Academy to show some of the best soccer talent in southern Florida. However, the men from Schulz say they not only believe in "working hard" but "playing harder."
"We look forward to the showcase and it's the place to be if you play soccer," said Schulz Academy player Josh Fusan. "Compared to the last event [Development Academy Winter Showcase], there is more to do and it's bigger. The video games are great it's a nice place to chill with the team and your friends." Thanks to the generous support of EA Sports, FIFA Street 3 and UEFA Euro 2008 were big hits in the Athlete's Lounge. Also, it gave the Schulz squad and other teams a chance to show-off their virtual "joga bonito".
"This is the place to be if you want to take it to the next level," said Thomas Verondee. "The guys you face on the field are great players. But, I still think I'm the best at FIFA Street--I'm unstoppable."
U.S. Soccer set up a dozen video game consoles, 48 remote controls, and music at the 2008 Academy Spring Showcase, for all players to enjoy.
