Is an American striker from Ft Lauderdale and has been signed to a pro contract at Bradford. I believe he is 18 or 19 years old. People with more skills with the internet can do better than me on this one. Never heard of him before.

If its not the premier league then all he needs is a foreign passport and then he will be registered to play in league one. As it is a lower league he doesnt need the work permit only if you are trying to play in the premier league do you have to have a work permit.

I went to the same program as this kid. It's called Riasa, the program brings over young American talent over to England. They have been around for about 5 years and have had a partnership with Bradford City since their inception. I only went to the program for a year but left, I got to play with Nahki Wells though he was my flat mate while we lived in Leeds before he signed for Carlisle and then eventually Bradford.

I would be more excited if he would of signed with Middlesbrough or Fulham, the other clubs he was trialing with.

But still hope he develops well and makes a bigger move down the road.

Anyone know his birth year?

He's been a difference maker in the two wins for the u20s and being drafted high in the draft, it's been a good rebound for Lewis. Patrick Vieira is a good coach for him to have and he gets to set up David Villa. If he can get the playing time that is. Tomorrow vs Mexico is a big game for Lewis who has the counter attacking speed and skill to make a difference.


The young soccer careers of Rubio Rubin and Brady Scott are headed in completely opposite directions.
