Lillard called up to U-20 MNT camp roster


Current Hinsdale Central senior Grant Lillard of the Chicago Fire Academy was recently called up to the United States Men’s National U-20 Soccer camp roster. The camp is sponsored by  the United States Soccer Federation and consists of the top national players who are under 20 years old.

Lillard, along with 35 other young stars, are currently practicing in Lakewood Ranch, FL. The camp started on Jan. 3 and extends until Jan. 12. It is the first domestic camp of the new cycle, and it features two intrasquad scrimmages.

The U-20 team is coming off of a 0-2-1 performance at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in which they couldn’t escape the “Group of Death.”

Lillard is also a member of the Red Devils basketball team and is committed to play soccer at Indiana University.
