Were there more fans or college recruiters? That was the big question during the 97 Girls Black game against the Colorado Pride Predators recently. The two teams squared off in Las Vegas for a National League game with scores of logos of schools from across the country adorning the sidelines. It was an impressive sight, especially considering the geographic map represented: Oregon to Duke; Wisconsin to Clemson; Arizona to Ohio State; and even Hawaii to Yale. The game was a microcosm of the recent success FC Alliance has had with helping players get to the collegiate level. After years of hard work, FC Alliance now finds itself on the map of most major NCAA programs in the country.
