German american, born in Germany, played for US U-19 national team three times with one goal (none of german NTs), is 19 years old.

Plays right winger, plays in 2.bundesliga for Heidenheim. Played today (started, played 103' against Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal). Wikipedia said he's played 15 games this year with them. Why the hell haven't I heard about him until right now....

Surprisingly I've never heard of him.

Anyone that is a winger needs to be tried out.

Never heard of this kid. While that was a nice goal, it's difficult to tell what his abilities are from a single highlight. Heidenheim currently sit 13th in the B-2 (tied w/ 4 teams), so not likely his team will be challenging for promotion (may actually be battling relegation).
Based on his stats, the kid looks to be a late game sub for Heidenheim only earning 240 minutes so far this season.
That being said we are in dire need of options at Right Mid. If the kid becomes a starter for Heidenheim next season, and we're still lacking options at RM, I wouldn't be opposed to giving this kid a look in a camp.


The final stretch of the English league season is upon us, with several Americans on the verge of relegation with their teams.
