Another Atlanta United academy player has been called up to a U.S. youth national team. U-16 defender Jackson Conway received the call from U.S. U-16 coach Shaun Tsakiris for an upcoming training camp in California.
Conway was one of 36 players to be called upon to represent the USA for the camp. He has played with the U-16 national team on several occasions before.
The camp will run from Sept. 3-10 and feature four friendlies against various youth teams.
