A 10-letter word to describe the competitive spirit of the USMNT camp? Crosswords

Berhalter, right, is getting to grips with his first USMNT camp, though Trapp, left, has asserted himself as the crossword king.

CHULA VISTA, Calif. -- For his first camp as manager of the U.S. men's national team, Gregg Berhalter instituted a rule: no cell phones in the dining area.

Little did Berhalter know that the players would find a low-tech way to put their own twist on meal time: crossword puzzles.

Take the mic away? Avoid him? Kick him? MLS coaches have their (tongue-in-cheek) say as to how to stop the great man.

AUSTIN, Tex. -- For a city that prides itself on keeping things weird, it's only fitting that Austin's journey to becoming an MLS franchise has been as strange as it gets.

Fifteen months ago, Anthony Precourt of Precourt Sports Ventures (PSV) announced his intention of relocating his Columbus Crew SC franchise to the Texas capital, setting in motion a wild series of events that ended with the Crew staying in Columbus with new owners, and Precourt getting his Austin wish as an expansion franchise...

How Siad Haji immigrated from Kenya, fell through U.S. Soccer's cracks and still rose to No. 2 in MLS SuperDraft

Ale Moreno looks at the highs and lows for Major League Soccer in 2018 ranging from die-hard fans, pitch invaders, Vikings and absolutely bonkers celebrations.

On Friday afternoon, Siad Haji achieved his dream of becoming a professional soccer player when the San Jose Earthquakes took the 19-year-old Generation Adidas attacker with the second pick in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft.

Haji took a winding road to reach this point. He's a refugee who grew up playing soccer on the streets in northern New England, nobody's idea of a soccer hotbed. He was never tipped for stardom, spending his freshman year of college in Division III before landing on a D-I team....

Why the MLS combine still matters, even as draft becomes increasingly unnecessary

ORLANDO, Fla. -- DeJuan Jones and Camden Riley were leaning against a wall in a tunnel underneath Orlando City Stadium, a look of satisfaction on their faces. Riley scored in Team X's 2-1 win over Team Nemeziz at the MLS Player Combine. His teammate Jones capped off a week in which he graded off the charts in terms of his athleticism and impressed with his production on the field as well. Each was content in the knowledge that he had increased his stock, in what could be the last ever combine,...
